After 10 months in Amecet, Norah gets a FAMILY!!!

Norah came to Amecet, via the hospital, she was admitted because she had fever and she cried all the time. A neighbour was with her in the hospital to care for her, because her mother was unable to do so. The mother is very sick, unable to walk and nobody in the family wanted to look after Norah. Norah came into Amecet as a sickly, crying child. It took a couple of months until Norah was doing better. She started to crawl when she was 11 months old and she became the darling of Amecet. She has such a cute smile, that you just melt, but she was very naughty, you could tell her to stop doing something, she looks  at you, smiles and continues... Sometimes she was really the troublemaker of Amecet. When she started to walk (at 13 months) she changed, she wanted to help every time, you were feeding a baby, put down the bottle to let the baby burp and you find your bottle is gone....Norah was bringing the bottle to the kitchen!!
Simon has been visiting the family, trying to find some one to care for Norah, but in vain. The family told Simon to find another family for Norah to adopt her.. So that is what he has been working on and he found a lovely family, right here in Soroti!! Yesterday, the probation Officer,  Mr. Ekallam came to give her officially over to her new family.
We are very happy that Norah will grow up in a loving family, it is something we wish for every child that leaves Amecet. Several children left, during the last week, it is difficult sometimes to let a child go. We offer some extra help, we visit at their homes, but it is letting go....
We let Norah go with a joyful heart!
