We began the day at Neema House, Project 82’s infant rescue home. When we arrived, all the babies were finishing their baths and getting dressed for the day. Annie sat with us, and shared each baby’s story, including how the baby came to Neema House, his or her health status and whether or not the baby is adoptable. Many of the team members had read the babies’ stories in a blog or Facebook post, but holding the baby and hearing the conditions under which they were abandoned really brought the stories to life.
In the afternoon, Caleb, Alice, Lily, Hassan and Isaac joined us. They have grown so much and are flourishing in preschool. Some of the team members took the older children to an animal rescue center and enjoyed watching their excitement in seeing some wild African animals up close.
Ron and Paige once again spent the day building a goat shed. We cannot thank them enough for their hard work. Anyone need a goat shed? I would highly recommend Ron and Paige.
Lord, let us not judge why a baby is abandoned, but know that it is our responsibility to care for and love each baby. Father raise up Kenyan families who will embrace the concept of “foster care” and want to become part of the solution as we work through churches to develop a program. Thank you for loving each of us, not because of what we do, but because of who you are. Amen
Anita, Executive Director
