William's twin brother arrived..

Yesterday I wrote about William, who we picked in the hospital. Today we got his twin brother as well. We left him with his mother in the hospital, because we didn't want the mother to ran away. This morning, Simon and the probation officer, went to the hospital and drove together with the mother to her village. The mother is very confused, so they were not sure where they would end up. But it all went well and they met with some relatives. They were not very willing to help with the boys, because there are in total 9 children and the mother is not caring for them. So we don't know what will happen with them, but for now, we are trying to get them well. I went to the doctor with them and after some laboratory tests we know that they are HIV-, so that was very good news. The brother is called Augustine and he has malaria, William is much more sick, we decided to give him a NG tube to feed him. Every two hours we feed him a special milk. Today he was very tired. We pray that we will pick up. It is sad to see those two boys together, the mother liked Augustine more than William, when we talked to her, she said I could take her children and keep them. I find it a very sad situation, but I saw Augustine smile today!!! I will let you know when William gives me his first smile, I will work at it!!
