Patience and Linda adopted

 Patience and her new mama

Linda and her Mum

Its not easy to believe that Patience is not at Happylife now. It took us a long time to get her legal documents so as to be released for adoption.  Going to the police several times, the children's department and finally we got them!!!  At times we may not know the plans God has in store even when we struggle here and there for these children.  About two months after we got her papers, she now has a new Mama!! What a joy both for Patience and her Mum!! Finally, we had to say bye bye to our beloved Patience.... we miss her already.  God bless you 'Pepe' and her new family.  

After Linda was admitted at HLCH, she became very sick and was admitted for a long time at Kenyatta National hospital.  I remember the joy we had when finally she was released from the hospital having recovered completely since all this time she had been put on oxygen;  it was a Miracle!.  Linda is a happy girl and she has never been sick again since.  Now she leaves happylife with her new Mama.  We will miss her especially mum Margaret who was so close to her and who stayed with her at the hospital for all the time.  Baraka kwa Linda and her new Family.
