We also are caring for new born babies, who lost their mother after the delivery. The third group of children we help, are children who need a safe place, they mostly come via the police.

Helping our Ugandan Adoptian family's.

 This are 5 parents from the 16 family's we are working with. All these family's have adopted a child via Amecet. In the blog from February 27, 2015, I wrote about our adoption reunion. We always try to re-settle the child within their family clan. but sometimes it is impossible and then we have to look for another solution, like adoption. We have placed around 19 children into local, Ugandan family's. And we are now helping those family's to get everything legal.
Simon is very busy with this. Meeting the Probation office, calling the adoption parents for a meeting, getting the paperwork done. meet with the Magistrate and organize the legal aid. There is an organization from lawyers who are helping people with free service for this kind of things. The parents are very thankful for this help and after getting the care order, they are now organizing for the Legal guardian and adoption order. On the upper picture, they are showing their care order.

 A happy reunion: Kennedy and Catherine. The top picture is from March 2012, they were the best friends, always playing together, Kennedy was 3 years and Catherine was almost 2 years. 
Today, 3 years later,  they met again, didn't recognise each other at first, but after a while they played again! Kennedy has now a loving family, and they are also getting the legal side organized.
I am so thankful  that all the children are doing well and we can help to get everything organized also on the legal side.
