The last few weeks have been such a rush. For some reason we also seem to get lots of new kids around trhe Christmas season.
On Monday we were the given the sweetest little girl. We have named her Kerri (after my sister) and she is estimated to be about 6 months old. She has not given an ounce of trouble since arriving. Kerri was left on a bus. Her mother asked a stranger to hold her while she got off the bus to do something, and she never returned. The best part is that Kerri is healthy, no HIV and no TB. We don;t get many like that these days.
Another new arrival is Lee. Lee is a screamer. The quicker we get her out to the Sandta Jones Children's Village the happier we will be. She is staying with us in our offices at the moment!! Lee's teenage mother left her in the house by herself. The lodger came home in the evening and found Lee screaming. After waiting hours for the mother to come back she finally took Lee to the police station and they eventually phoned us. They say that Lee is about 10 months old. As you can see by her photo she has a serious squint and will need surgery to correct it. Fortunately we know an eye specialist who comes from the USA every year. So when he comes next we will ask him to look at Lee.
