Michel goes back to his family.

Michel was born 7/9/2010, he was born at home in the village. Unfortunately his mother passed away after given birth to Michel and his family asked us to help them by taking Michel for a couple of months. He was a healthy baby, only his cord was infected and we got treatment for that.
Michel was a cute little fellow, ready to smile and laugh to everyone who gave him attention. He drank very well and was gaining good.
Today, after 3 months in Amecet, we brought him back to his family. Michel had a father and 9 brothers and sisters in the village. Some of them has been to Soroti to visit Michel. It was a drive of 1 hour and we arrived at his home. A big change of environment for Michel!!! The brothers and sisters were happy to see him and from every where people started to arrive to see what was happening. Not every day cars are coming so far into the bush! The father was called, he was at a home nearby and we handed Michel over to the family. We gave a mosquito net and some clothes, the medical book and the immunization card.
Then they wanted to give us a chicken, so the boys started to ran after a chicken, which didn't let her catch easily. It was very funny to see all those people run after this one chicken! But the chicken lost the game and was handed over to us, as a thank you!
We drove back to Soroti, thankful that Michel is reunited with his own people and praying for his well being!
