It is still holiday, but the children play well together, they have their holiday packet and they have fun together... We still have an (almost) full house, with lots of baby's. Some have gone home, but there are others who filled the beds again...
Today we said goodbye to one of the two sets of twins (blog of July 6) Last week Rose and Michel went home and today Suleiman and Rashid left us. Are they not beautiful little men!!! It is a joy for us to give two healthy baby's back to the family. The children are going back to their own people (and we have two free beds :))
In my last blog of September 3, I wrote about Patrick, a little boy who was found in Soroti town, we have been busy with him, his hand was very swollen after an IV injection, and the swelling only increased, it was very painful for him. But today he is very much improved, he can smile, walk a bit and the swelling is gone. We only heard that he has a heart problem and we were advised to go to the heart institute in Kampala.
This is William, a boy who enjoys life!!!! Playing in the mud is his favorite game and we have had some rain lately, so he does enjoys that! We are trying to find his parents, William came in Amecet, malnourished, he was with his grandparents, but he can't go back there, he would end up the same...Now we are searching for his parents, they are separated. We hope that they can help William.
In the blogs of August 11 and August 22, I wrote about Michel. He is operated and walks around now with big metal screws in his leg. last week we went back to the doctor and we had to make an X-ray. We were very curious how it was going with the growth of the bone. The Doctor was very content, there is new bone growing and the bones are in the right position. So he walks all over the compound with his crutches and is doing great!!
We ask your prayers for Moses (blog of July 31) at first he did well, then he just didn't want to eat he lost weight and we even had to give him a NG tube, that helped a little time, but now he is just dropping again. It is hard to see it, we are trying all we know and can.......
Then I end this blog with some exciting news, we are working with several families who want to adopt one of the children. There are several children who don't have a home to go back to, because they were abandoned and we failed to find any relatives or the relatives can not or do not want to care for them anymore. We were able to find a family for three children..... I will share more when everything is cleared with the Probation officer and the court!!!
