A day full of joy and happyness...

Even it was raining today, it was a very happy day!! Patrick came to visit with his new parents! Patrick was left behind in the evening in Soroti town. (Sept.2017). He was very sick and he spend a couple of nights in my house. he picked up and when you read the blog of Jan.23'18, you can see the big difference. Patrick had always a special place in my heart!  

Patrick is doing so well, he came inside Amecet and the children were just having lunch., he joined them directly. His parents love him!!! They enjoy him and you could really see that Patrick is at ease with them. I love the little rubber boots from Patrick, just like his dad!!

 This morning we had another visitor, Jesica came, together with her parents. Jesica came in Amecet as a small baby, her mother had tried to kill her. And last year she was adopted into a lovely family. She is also doing so well and her parents are so happy with her! What looks like a terrible situation in the beginning, can have a beautiful and happy ending!!!!
 Then Baby Moses was handed over to his new mother by the Probation Officer. Moses was found in January 2018 on the road. In spite of the tracing, the posters we hang, the radio messages and the newspaper ads, his family was never found. Today he was given a new family, his mother is very happy to receive him and we know that he will be loved and cared for! 
Maybe you remember the blog about the little boy, who was left behind in a taxi? (March 20'18) Later, a bag with dirty clothes and a letter found in the taxi. In the letter was written a name and a village. Our social worker (Simon) went searching and he found the family. On this picture Edward (the name used by us) but his real name is Ronald, is handed over to his father. On the background the grandmother, who will care for him and Ronald looks exact like her! Again a story with a happy end.....
 In my last blog I wrote about Gorreti, how we had to take her to the clinic on Sunday. We were even worried that she would die that day! This is a picture from today...... She is doing well, drinking again on her own, so we removed her NG Tube. No more IV medication and IV drips. She is gaining again! So again, a happy end, even she is not completely well.
It is good for everybody to have those happy moments, there are so many sad stories and struggles. It encourages us and we know that there is always hope!!! We thank you all for your prayers and keep praying for us!
