Ruben will be Fred.......

In my blog of April 16, 2016, I wrote about a little boy, who was found on the road, dumped and abandoned by his family. In the blog of April 16 I wrote about the tracing we tired, we went several times back to Serere looking for people who knew the little boy, we placed him several time with his picture in the newspaper, but nothing came out. We got from the Police and Probation office the green light to look for a family who could foster and then adopt him. We found that family!!! And that is why his name is changed into Fred, after his new father!!!!
Today was the official hand-over...
 Mr. Ekallam, the senior Probation officer, came to Amecet to represent the government of Uganda and handed Ruben/Fred over to his new parents. They were very happy and we know that Ruben/Fred will be loved and cared for.
We will miss him, he was walking all over the compound, he starts to talk and makes us to laugh!! But his friend Jackson will miss him the most... Jackson is walking now and together they roam around and fight about the little scooter. Jackson will miss his friend, but at least he doesn't has to fight anymore about the scooter!!
