A new start for Alice.....

Alice has been taken into Amecet twice, the first time in 2013, she was only 8 months old, after some time she was re-settled with her mother, trying also to involve the grandmother. It went well for a while, the mother is very unstable, after a while we had to re-settle her with other relatives. On and off, we kept in contact with the mother, who got Alice back with her. The mother has a mental illness and the local authorities got very worried when they saw Alice begging on the streets. The mother used to get money via Alice and Alice was quite good in it... The authorities asked us to take Alice back into Amecet and they brought her to us in March 2017. The mother is pregnant again and still on the streets. We have tried to re-settle Alice with her relatives, but nobody was willing to take her. In the meantime we let Alice go to the nursery school and she did that very well, she calmed down and started to listen and got better manners. Alice is a very cute girl and makes us laugh many times.
We found a Ugandan family who is willing to take her in and to care and love her. On Friday she was handed over by the Probation officer to her new parents. They are very excited about getting this little girl and we see a good future for Alice with them. Alice was very happy           We have been talking with her about it, but just before the handover, Simon talked with her in the office, explaining to her what would happen. She was very okay with it, walked to her new parents and greeted them. When she was sitting
in the car to leave, she waved with a big smile and said:  Bye, I am going to my home!!!!
