In our blog of January 7, you can read the story about the triplets. The mother couldn't cope with the three crying 2,5 month old baby's. The oldest is a boy, he was looking okay, but the two girls were small and cried so much! That time we decided to take the two girls to Amecet for a while, to give the mother and the grandmother and the great-grandmother a break! The mother was very happy, she came to visit her two girls several times while they were with us. The little girls were gaining and doing well, so 2 weeks ago we asked the mother to come and pick one of them, Maureen. And today we brought Ruth the third one back, to re-unite her with her family.
It was a one hour drive to their village and three of our volunteers went with us. Here we are at the home, at the left: Carline with the boy, Henri, then Marieke with Maureen and Elinor with baby Ruth.
The mother was very happy to see her daughter again and Ruth was very welcome! We heard that Maureen is doing well and that she is not crying, but sleeping during the night!!! At the right is the mother and the lady left is the grandmother. The family is very supportive of the mother and the three baby's!
It must be a strong family, because at the left on this picture is the great-grandmother. We asked her how old she was, but she didn't know, maybe 75?? All in all it was a happy trip, we felt all good about bringing Ruth home and also to see that we had really helped the family. Now they can cope with the three baby's and also the baby's are stronger now, they can drink porridge. We help them with some regular milk money. The neighbours have cows, so they can buy the milk and the children will grow!!!
