Richard has found a loving family...

It gives us so much joy, to see a child go to a loving family!!! Yesterday was such a day again.... On January 25th 2016 a little baby was brought into Amecet by the police officers from a neighbouring District, Ngora. The baby was stolen from Kenya, that was the story. the lady who was found with the baby, was in police custody. (read blog of 25/1/2016). A lot has been done trying to find the family of the boy, with the Ngora Police and Probaton officer, via Interpol to Kenya, up to now, nobody was found. So the probation office had asked us if we could find a fitting family for baby Richard. That family has been found!!! It is a lovely moslim family, and it looks if Richard even came from this family, same color!!! After all the paperwork was done with the Probation Office in Soroti, and the family has been visiting us regular to hold Richard and play with him, was yesterday the day to hand him over to his new, forever family!
The senior Probation Officer, Mr. Ekallam,  came to do the hand over. 
The father and mother with their first born son!
It was a happy time, the family will love him so much, Elias (right) will miss him, Richard was a special to him. But to know that he will belong and will be loved is such a reward!! And we will see him again, because the family lives in Soroti town.
