Jobby Job went back to his family!!!

Today we said goodbye to Job, and it was not easy.... Job has been with us in Amecet for almost one year!!! But he was ready to go and the best place for him is to be in his family!

He was brought  into Amecet in Feb.2015, with the story that both of his parents were dead. He was small and weak and we struggled with him from the beginning 

These two pictures are from April

He was on IV drip, on oxygen and fed by NG tube, Janneke was very busy with him. He got blood transfusion, and was put on anti TB drugs. He did better, but so slow and he always was weak and vulnerable. But since November he started to put  on more weight, his personality started to come out more and more, His blood tests came out good and we started to play and react on people. It is hard to see in that little weak baby the Job of today!! Everybody loves him and it was hard to say goodbye!!
A car full of people from Amecet, left to the village today, to bring Job to his relatives. It was quite far and I was told that it was deep in the village. His auntie will be the one to care for him at home. The grandmother was also home and when she heard the car coming, she ran into the hut and it took quite a while before she dared to come out.. We brought together with Job a mattress, a mosquito net, blanket, some clothes, some little toys, his drinking cup and his medical book. The family was happy to receive Job back in their home and we pray that Job will be a blessing to them and will bring as much joy to them as he brought to us in Amecet!
