Baby Tai

Over the years, I have noted that there are so many children abandoned between the months of  October to December; I can explain the reason why but I can only speculate.  My guess may not be true but I always think that some young girls who could be the mothers of these young ones would want to have a "good time" without the burden of taking care of their babies during the holidays, strange guess...... What could be the reason? I have no one to answer.  Tai has just been admitted today the 13th of December having been abandoned at the Githurai open air market early this morning. He is about 2 months old.   Once we admit these children, we usually bathe them before feeding them and giving them a bed.  From his face, Tai did not really enjoy the water but after he was fed, he looked calm and peaceful.  Welcome baby Tai.

Graham has a new family ( A dad and a Mum)

I cannot imagine Happylife children's home without Gramo!!!! Graham was admitted at HLCH when he was one month old. His early days were very challenging since he was in and out of hospital but later he recovered and he is one of those healthy jovial children.  Those who have met him naturally falls in love with him, always happy and he loves dancing.  "Gramo" as we call him has a new family!!! He will be celebrating his eighth birthday in January; this time not at Happylife but with his mami and daddy.  He had such a faith that his mum and dad will be coming and he constantly talked and prayed about it, and the day has come.  We are happy for him but we are sad to see him leave.  We love you Graham and you will always be a part of our lives.  God bless Gramo and his new family.

Judy and Abraham are now Brother and Sister

Judy and Abraham will remain to be a sister and a brother having been adopted in one family. God's plans are the best; they only have an age difference of one day.  Thanks be to God who knows all things and has a good plan for these children.  God bless these two and their parents.
