Bye bye Anna.......

 Today was the day we said Goodbye to Anna. Sarah loves Anna a lot and she will miss her, but Anna is going to her new family, and that is why we can rejoice!!!
Anna came to Amecet in March 2017, her mother was mentally ill and nobody knows who her father is. The uncle brought Anna to Amecet when she was 5 days old, her mother had given birth to her, by herself in the bush, but she rejected the baby, didn't want to give breastfeeding and was aggressive towards the baby. So the baby came to Amecet..... After 2 months we wanted to resettle the baby back to the relatives, but then the problems came. The uncle was looking after the other children of the mother and his own children, he couldn't care for another baby. we went to talk with them, to see if there would be another relative willing to look after Anna, but there was no one.They asked us to look for a family who wanted to foster Anna and later adopt her.
 That process took time, we had to put Anna's picture in the newspaper, to see if anyone came still to claim her. But no one came, so the process went on and a nice family came forward, they wanted to adopt a child. Today the Senior Probation officer, Mr. Oluka Amos (right) gives Anna to her new parents. They were very happy to receive Anna...
And this is the happy family!!!
