Mama Susan and Baby Ben went home today!

Susan came in August last year in Amecet as a 12 year old pregnant girl. A very sad situation, Susan is so small, you could easily take her for 10 years old. She was brought by the police and her family and the family of the boy (who is on the run) are in jail. The baby was born on September 18 (see the blog) by a Caesarian in the hospital and everything went well. Except that baby Ben had a problem with his legs and also a bit with his arms. For the rest is he doing very well and Susan is a wonderful mother! We have taken Ben several times to the Orthopaedic Centre in Kumi, but there is not much what can be done. We have to wait how Ben is developing. The Police and the Probation office is very much involved in the whole process.  And they found the mother of Susan, who lives in another village. After much consulting, the family from the mother's side is very willing to take Susan in and help her caring for Ben. Susan will go back to school (P3) and the grandmother will help with Ben. Susan was very exciting to go back to her mother and today was the big day!
Ben is a cute little boy, who laughs a lot. (only not on this picture)
Simon and Elias were going to bring them back to the village, together with the Police (not on the picture).  We were able to provide some things for her and Ben and we will be visiting them, to check how things are going. This was the first time we had a mother and baby in Amecet, it was so good that we could help her and I believe that she is now in the right place. We will miss them, we all loved Susan and her "Bennyboy"!
