There was a special gathering in a big play garden in Holland. we met with the 8 Ugandan children and their families, who all have been living in Amecet, but are adopted in Belgium. Amecet works hard to reunite the children with their own family, if that is not possible, we try to find an Ugandan family who wants to give the child a home and a family. If that is not possible, the child can be adopted by a foreign family, this is a long process, via High Court.

It was all started by the plan to let Helen and her good friend Mary meet together, When Mary was still in Amecet, they were very good friends.. After Mary went to live in Belgium, there were long Skype talks... They just had to see each other and this meeting ended up to be a reunion....
I was so excited to see them all again, and it is going well with all of them. Their parents also all came and it was a very nice and relax time. The children played and the adults played with them and talked together. I was impressed with the way they had grown and changed. the most I was touched when I saw Thomas, here on the picture. This little boy came into Amecet, more dead than alive, now I saw him playing in the sandbox!!!!
And now...we say goodbye to Holland and we fly back to Uganda tomorrow. We have had a good time, saw many people and did many thing. We enjoyed our time very much , I feel refreshed and I am looking forward meeting everybody in Amecet again.
