Greetings from Lazaro and 6 kg. baby's...

 Greetings from Lazaro, he is known in Amecet, we got him in our home in 2009. He was that time very malnourished and sick. He has the brickle bone disease. His arms and legs are very deformed, because of the sickness and the broken bones he has had. We went to the village to visit another family and stopped at the home of Lazaro. He is healthy, much stronger than he was before, but he has of course, still this awful brickle bone disease. He is very small for his age, he is now 5 years old, but he looks 2 years old. The family looks after him and they seem to be happy. You feel so helpless sometimes, you can't do much for them.
We have three newborn baby's in Amecet, together they weigh just over 6 kg!! At the right I am carrying Grace, she is the oldest, born on 7th of August, then in the middle William, he was born on the 12th of August, I wrote about him in the last blog and at the left Agnes, she was brought yesterday, she is also born on the 12th of August. Agnes has still problems with drinking, we feed her every two hours. The other two are doing a bit better, but still they need a lot of care. They all three lost their mother just after the delivery, three little baby's with a difficult start.
