Today was a very special day... Robert went to his new family!!! In April 2013, Robert came as a new born baby in Amecet. His mother left him and has mental problems and the family of the mother couldn't care for him. After testing it came out that Robert was HIV+. In the beginning he was quite sick, but when he became stronger, he didn't get sick much and he developed into a lovely little boy. Normally we have baby's only 3 months in Amecet then we bring them back to the relatives, but with Robert was that not possible, He became the darling of the aunties. But still, Robert needed a family!! And God heard our prayers... A Missionary couple in Soroti came to visit us, and after that time several times more... They also loved Robert, after talking, the process started. Going to the Probation office, then finding the relatives and see if they had changed their mind. It is quite a process, but today the Probation officer came to Amecet to hand Robert over officially to his new parents. Their fostering of 3 years has started and will be going over in adoption after 3 years.
Rachel and Daniel Graham receive their new son from Amos Oluka, the Probation Officer
And this is the family, with their first born son. They are really so happy with them and for us it is such a relief, to know that he will be loved and cared for, that he will get his ARV's every day, that he has a future!
I want to share something else with you... About Michel. He is with us for more than a year. Left behind in the outpatient of Soroti hospital. He is spastic and can't sit on his own, he doesn't talk. But he is such a lovely boy, when he smiles at you, your day is good!!! Michel has been sick for a week now. High fevers, really high, and he get all tense and stiff, he cries, he might have pain. We have been gone to the clinic, treated him, but still the high fevers were there. We took him to the pediatrician, she changed the medication again, we had to do some more blood tests, but nothing came out of it. It is hard to see him so miserable. The staff is doing great with him, they are really trying to help him, holding him when he cries etc. Please pray for Michel, that the medication will work and that we will see his lovely smile again!!!
