Doreen and baby Else are going back to the village

In several Blogs I have been writing about Doreen, she was a very hurt 15 year old girl, her boyfriend tried to kill her after he heard that she was pregnant. You can read her story in the blog of September 4 and 7. In the blog of October 9 you read that we got her a teacher in sewing. And she did very well. Her baby girl was born on November 13, you can read her story about the Cesarean. Doreen has changed a lot. She could hardly look you in the face, was very shy, but now she talks and she is a happy girl. We took her to the Physio therapy in the hospital and she has been doing exercises with her left arm, which was not working anymore. She can now handle her baby with that paralysed arm and the 3 fingers on her right hand. She really improved so much.
 Simon and Elias brought her back, together with some staff. We gave her the sewing machine, we loaded it in the car and she was very excited, she never thought that it would be hers! Doreen was ready to go back home. She loves her little girl, she can stand for herself and she has hopes for the future.

I am saying goodbye to my name sake. Baby Else is a very easy baby. And we are so glad that Doreen opened her heart for this little girl.

Doreen was warmly welcomed by her mother (at the right). She will live with her mother and her husband. The sewing machine will help Doreen to be independent. We are happy it all worked out so well. We 'll miss Doreen and baby Else, but this is the place where they belong!
