Kennedy gets a family!!

Today we said goodbye to Kennedy, and especially Catherine will miss him a lot, they always played together. Kennedy is one year older than Catherine.
The first time Kennedy was brought to us by the Police was in august 2010, he was one year old and in danger, because of his mother. After some time he went back to his mother, but October last year he was brought back again. The mother can't look after him and his grandfather signed the papers from Probation office to look for an adoption family.
Kennedy is a very special gentle boy, I have not seen many little boys who are so gentle with the little baby's and always wanting to help whenever a baby is crying (which does happen at times in Amecet!). A family came who wanted to take Kennedy in their home and today was the big day!

I officially hand Kennedy over to his new mother.

Witnessed by Simon, and Amos, (Amos is one of the Probation officers in Soroti). The adoption is under their supervision.
Kennedy we wish you a bright and happy future!!!


  1. geweldig nieuws! ik ben blij voor Kennedy en wens hem ook alle liefde en geluk toe bij zijn nieuwe familie.

  2. Sinds ik je gisteren heb gesproken is dit inderdaad heel snel, maar zeer positief! Ik hoop en zal bidden voor een mooie en liefdevolle toekomst voor mijn lieve vriendje:)

    Groetjes, Mirjam

  3. I have been following Kennedy's journey and have been praying for him. I pray that his life continues to be blessed.

    Is Kennedy being adopted by this local family in the picture? Will you receive updates on his status?

    It would be nice to hear more of his journey. Thank you so much for all that you do!

    1. Yes the lady at the right on the last picture is his new mother. In the middle the probation officer and at the left Simon, the co-leader of Amecet. The family lives in Soroti and we will keep in touch as well with him


  4. I had been specifically praying for Kennedy recently (the few days leading up to your post about his adoption) and was INCREDIBLY excited when I saw that he found a family!!! PRAISE the LORD!!! :D
