Emmanuel has got a Family!!

In our first blog of this year, I wrote about Emmanuel, and you can see his first picture, a small baby whose weight was only 1.8 kg! Over the months we have been busy with him, because we didn't know the HIV status from his mother, we started him on medication, but after the tests we got the results that he is free of HIV! We tried to find his relatives, the mother disappeared, but via radio and newspapers and going to the area where he was found and asking questions around, we tried to get at least someone who knew the mother..but all in vain. At the same time there was a family in Belgium, waiting for a second child and after a lot of paperwork, the High Court in Soroti gave a positive ruling for Bram and Melina Ingels to be the forever parents of Emmanuel and for Franco to be the brother of Emmanuel. 
It was a joy to see the family bonding together and we let them go with our blessings and prayers!!!
