Moses 4 is welcome......

Moses is born this morning, his mother died, she was only 22 years old. He was born in one of the health centres in the village. He was brought to us by two uncles and his aunti. His father was too weak to come. Because I needed some answers, which the uncles didn't know, I called him (yes even in the villages there is network now!) It was so sad, he was crying on the phone, he told me that the placenta didn't come out and his wife bled to death. He begged us to care for his child, so he would live and he would have someone who would remind him of his wife! I felt for him and we will care for some months for Moses 4.
We call him Moses 4, because we have already some othere Moseses. I wish there were some other names in fashion at the moment. Moses is a big baby, his weight is 3,4 kg. For us that is very big, most of the baby's we get are under 3 kg. I wrote about Patrick before, he is almost 3,5 month old and he weighs now 3 kg! You can see the difference on this picture, at the left Moses 4, just 12 hours old, 3,4 kg and at the right Patrick, almost 3,5 month old and 3 kg.
We will celebrate Christmas together with Moses, we will tell him about that other Child, also born in the village, we will pray for his father.
Moses is welcome!!!
