Saying goodbye is always a bit painful..

Today we said goodbye to baby Rose! Two months ago we were called by Soroti hospital, there was a very sick mother with small baby of two months old. If we could help??? I drove to the hospital and the situation was not good. The mother could still talk and she was very grateful that we wanted to care for her child. Rose also had to be tested for HIV, she was at risk. We did that and the first DNA test came back negative, so that is really good. She also gained 1,5 kg. and she got a stand-in mother in Mary for the time she was in Amecet. Mary will miss her a lot, but a child need to be with the mother, so Mary was happy to hand Rose back to her real mother. We will still see them on  our "Come back" days. We pray that all will go well with the two of them!!
