Pendo has a new Family - 3 more children in the process



This has been a great week, Five of our children will be going for adoption: Pendo, Handasha, Nina, Dennis and Aaron. Pendo left yesterday and the others are in the bonding process. We are very happy for them, but we will miss them so much. However, we will have another opportunity to bring hope to another abandoned child.

God will never stop to amaze us!! Aaron's story


Just a few weeks ago, I wrote about baby Aaron who had a kidney problem. The doctors were asking a lot of money for him to be operated and remove one of his kidneys they said had failed. We have been trying to get a cheaper hospital for that but this is not necessary. Wow!! Writing this makes me even more excited!!! Our God will never stop to amaze us; and this week He did it again! God cares for these children even to the fine details that we may not think about. Aaron is getting a new family: a dad, mum, a sister and a brother!!! The amazing thing is Aaron’s adoptive father is a medical person, working in organ’s transplant and especially kidneys. It seems like it can be true in the movies, but this is for real; it is God’s destiny. The first time they saw Aaron’s story on the blog made them think and want to know more about this boy. This is even more exciting!!, when the adoptive dad saw his medical reports, he told us that, according to his observation, the boy may not need the operation, although he is still consulting with other doctors. The adoptive dad is Kenyan and the mother is from Finland. Wow… Glory to God!!!

Two new babies admitted! Seth and Chiara




Today we have two new admissions of baby Seth - 2 months old and Chiara who is about 10 months old. Seth was born pre-term with a birth weight of 2.5 kgs. His mother later abandoned him at the hospital a week later. Chiara was abandoned outside the gate of a residential house. She is a very happy girl and enjoys playing with the other children at HLCH.

A sad time for Happy Life Family

Serving these children is so fulfilling. When we see children who come weak, sick, unhappy growing up to be healthy and happy children gives us a lot of joy. However, we also go through great challenges when some of these children die having served then with all diligence. This week baby Christian passed on at Kenyatta hospital where he had been admitted for 5 days. This boy was the youngest then 3 1/2 months old and everyone loved him so much. When such a thing happen, our hearts are full of pain, and very discouraged. Christian was one of those healthy babies and all of a sudden he gets sick and in 5 days, he is gone. pray for us that the Lord of all comfort will see us through this.
