Because some days, you just need to smile.
Man, life is hard. There’s a lot of serious stuff happening out there. Our church partners see it every day as they minister to children in poverty. But you know what? Life is really beautiful too. It’s good to pause in the midst of all our busy-ness and seriousness to appreciate and breathe in all the beauty … and cuteness in the world.
Here are some of the sweetest, cutest baby photos from around the world.

Are you smiling yet? Behind these beautiful faces are real stories of hardship. But these are also all babies who are receiving vital postnatal care through the local church because of generous people like you! Their mamas and daddies are learning things like nutrition, hygiene and income-generating skills to keep their families happy and healthy.
Now if that doesn’t make you smile, what will?!
