Almost going back...

I have been very quiet in our Blog, we are still in Holland, but almost going back to Uganda. We have had a great time, visiting family and friends, we went to talk on some schools and we experienced SNOW!!!! For Sarah was it the second time, but for Mary, Helen and Catherine was is the first time. They were so excited, but they struggle with the cold! We are packing at the moment and in three days we will be back in Uganda. We are looking forward to it, we missed the sun and our friends there.
I have got some communication with Amecet, overall it went very well, but last Sunday morning a little baby of three days old, died. It was a sad story, the little baby was born on the street, the mother was with a boda (bicycle taxi) on her way to the hospital to deliver. On the way was the baby born and the mother died on the street. Very tragic, the baby had from the start problems with drinking, a lot of vomiting, they tried everything but in vain. The next blog will be again written from Soroti!
