Safari!!

I have now been back in Nkoaranga for almost two weeks now and have so much to write about – it has been fantastic.  But for now, I want to tell you all the ‘safari’ (trip) which we took the kids on!  We had decided that it would be really fun for the kids to...

Hannukah and Piki Pikis

Bethan and Maureeni, cheesing for the camera Happy Hannukah from Tanzania! Not a phrase that’s uttered PARTICULARLY regularly, but I’ve always been a tad unconventional. To the kids, though, it’s Christmas, Christmas, Christmas. Tomorrow we’re having a Christmas party, which Baba Christmasi HIMSELF will be attending (in the person of Kelvin from KATZ volunteers). Each...

Portrait of a birthday

 This is my second consecutive birthday at the orphanage – what a blessing. Zawadi’s name itself means gift – and she’s the best one I could ask for. They’ve changed so much since last year, though! This was my happy birthday reception from them last year – although the video was taken two weeks after...

Homecoming

I cannot possibly express how thrilled I am to be back here with these gorgeous little faces. The pictures would help, but my card reader is acting up, so words will have to suffice for today! After leaving my apartment in London at 5 am, I arrived in Tanzania on Sunday at midnight, only to...

On my way!

Publishing might be a bit sparse for the next week or so, but for excellent reason, as in just 10 hours I will be taking off to Tanzania, to be reunited with my beautiful babies! I’ve been counting down the days for months and the hours for days – I could not possibly be more...
