Too small, too short, too sad........

This is the last picture taken from little Moses. He died this morning in my arms, weighing only one kg. and 400 gram.
He was brought to Amecet 3 weeks ago, a small premature baby, his mother was very sick. Both parents were tested HIV+. We took him in and put him in our incubator. There he has been laying, cared for and fed every two hours. He gained 250 gram, we were happy, but then, 3 days ago a mosquitto got him, and he got malaria. he never recovered from it. It was too much for his little body.
This morning I saw that it was going to end. I took him out of the incubator in my arms and we both waited for the moment that Jesus took him from me.

His life was too short, I know Jesus will take care of our little man.

  1. Hey Els,

    We leven met je mee! Veel sterkte met het overlijden van Mozes. Zoveel kinderen verliezen in een korte tijd moet veel van jou en je medewerkers vragen.
    Weet dat we dagelijks voor jullie bidden.
    Fijn dat weblog, we volgen jullie zo bijna dagelijkse. a big hug and greetings, Joke and Bernard
