It’s sad for us because we will miss his sweetness, his funny faces, and his cuddles – and yes, even his tantrums – but good because it is always nice for a family to be reunited. As I mentioned briefly in our last post, we are working this summer on a pilot project which will hopefully prevent these types of situations from occurring in the first place – where there is a loving family that simply cannot afford to adequately care for the child. We’ll be running basic business classes and distributing small grants to help families in similar situations get on their feet and keep their children.

And speaking of a happy dance, I have no IDEA what he was doing in this video, but it was closer to a breakdance than anything else.
In other news, Zawadi, Neema, Ester, Miriam and Maureen are all in underwear now (Thanks Amy for the update!) – VERY exciting progress, since there’s still another nine kids in diapers. Every bit helps! So proud of how grown up they’re getting, but very, very sad not to be there to see it. 47 days and counting every second till I get to hold them again.
