Joy and worries....

It has been a busy week, with lots of worries, but I start with the JOY!!! August 18 we got a little baby brought in Amecet by the police. It was a new born baby, the mother has a mental problem, and after some talking we knew that this was the second baby we got in Amecet from the same mother. In my blogs of June 15 and June 19 2012, you can read how we got Levi (is now called Silas) came into Amecet and how we went to visit the mother, but she didn't even recognise her child. This little boy found a loving family (read the blog from September 19, 2012). This family are missionaries in Soroti and we do see them regularly. We knew that they were thinking about a second child, so we told them about the little girl Hellen. They responded positive and after all the legal papers with Probation office and Court, Silas welcomed his little biologic sister in his family. It was so nice to see how welcome this little girl was. We pray for this family: Collin, Veronica, Silas and Hellen Rosser.
Than the worries:

 We have been busy this week with Thomas, the little baby I wrote about the my last blogs. He had diarrhea and stopped drinking, got fever and we had to start feeding him with a NG tube. He has been on IV drip and we were really worried about him. He is so fragile, we have not yet heard any news about his family, so that is also a big concern. Since today, he is doing a bit better, but he lost weight, so please keep praying for him.
We are also very concerned about Gabdesia. She is very sick, we have the feeling that she is giving up. She refuse to eat and to take medication. Please pray for her, that we are able to really reach her, that it is not too late.
Janneke our nurse, is on a well deserved holiday to Holland. Together with the volunteers, I wrote about in my last blog, we care for those precious children. I am not living anymore on the Amecet compound, so we really need to work together with Dominique and the volunteers. I am really thankful that God send the right people, when we need them!
