Ephie(Papa) and Mayana have new families


Mayana and her Mother, What a joy!


Ephie (Papa) and his parents - They really look alike!

When Ephie's adoptive parents came to identify their child, they wanted a boy between 6 months and one year old. We had informed the adoption agency that the boy we had of that age did not have one document which would take one or two months. After negotiating with the adoption agency, they requested if we would show them a 1 1/2 years old child although they were not sure since they wanted a child less than one year old. When I took them to see Ephie, and I told them his name, they laughed a lot and I thought, what could be the problem? I tried to ask them but they could not stop laughing. Ephie is not a common name in Kenya and so I thought, may be they find the name funny. When they later came to the office they told me that the reason why they were laughing so is because they had decided that their adoptive son will be called Ephie, the short form of Ephraim and they were amazed! Isn't God amazing? they said. So our son has been here all along.

Kevin gets a new family



Kevin was admitted at HLCH on 11/07/06. He is 6years old, and has been going to Mt. View school in class one. This was a great day for Kevin; his time to leave HLCH and join his new family of Mr. and Mrs Joseph Mboloi and her older sister Mercy. His adoptive parents have been coming to bond with him but they had to wait for Kevin to close the school. Days were very long for Kevin as he waited for this day but it has finally come, and he could not hide the joy. His new name be Kevin Mutuku.
