Baby Elias has got a family.....

 A happy moment: The Probation Officer from Soroti, hands over baby Elias into the hands of his new parents!!
 The Botting Family!!
In the beginning of January 2016, the Police officer from Katakwi brought baby Elias to Amecet. The baby was found at the side of the road in the early morning by someone who went to the borehole for water. They first asked the lady who found him, to look after him, while the police tried to find relatives from the baby, but all in vain. And on January 13 2016, he was brought to Amecet. Several attemps were done to find the relatives, by radio message, newspaper and community meetings, but no one was found. 
In the meantime the Botting family started the process to adopt Elias. They are living in the North of Uganda and are send as missionaries from Canada to live and work in Uganda. Elias is their first born child and they are very exciting about him!!
This picture is taken on January 13 2016, Elias is holding the baby, who we named after him, since uncle Elias also comes from Katakwi!!

Uncle Elias says goodbye to baby Elias. He has been busy with all the documents and paperwork for the adoption. We are sure that Elias will be loved and we pray he will grow up and be a blessing to his family and to many others!
