Greetings from Naome...

"Please Auntie, greet everybody from me" that is what Naome asked me this afternoon, so that is what I do, greetings from Naome!!! Naome is one of the girls who lived with us in Amecet and later in our second house Amun. She requested to go and live with her uncle, that was not so easy for her. But trough several battles she came out very strong and open about her status. We have been in contact all those years, and have been able to help her to go to secondary boarding school. In the holidays she lives with her grandmother in the village. She called me 10 days ago to ask me if we could come to her birthday. I was surprised, according to our papers her birthday was in January. We couldn't make it that day, so we went today. One hour drive, on a very bad road, but it was so nice to see her. She looks smart in her school uniform and she is doing well. Very busy with the end of term exams. We had a good talk with her and we let her go back to her class. But I promised to take her greetings!!!!
Than what do you think of this rock star???? Is she not cool? My youngest daughter, Catherine. She is a real cute and funny girl and makes us laugh a lot.
