EXCEPTIONAL FAMILY SHARES THEIR LOVE
Wednesday afternoon a young couple walked in with an orphaned infant needing milk. Nothing unusual about that until we read the Social Services letter. This young couple were doing something few family members would do. Take in FOUR orphans after the wife’s sister passed away 2 days ago. Usually the children are split up between several family members.
Hidina and her husband with orphaned infant named Delfina.
Hidina and her husband have 3 children of their own, ages 4, 2, and 3 MONTHS! They are accepting responsibility for a 6‑week-old infant girl, plus her three siblings, ages 4, 7, and 10.
We immediately accepted the orphans into our food program and gave this couple 2 large cooking pans. They most certainly need all the help they can get, as their family more than doubled in 1 day! I asked how they planned to handle 2 infants, and they assured me that the grandmother would assist.
NOW THAT IS LOVE!
Grandmother and Hidina’s husband brought Baby Delfina and her 3 sisters to receive food on Thursday.
We will be observing and assisting these children with clothes and other items as this couple will need maximum help with their new “extended” family.
Please keep them in prayer. At the moment, all 4 orphans are healthy, just a bit confused as to what is going on.
THANK YOU FOR MAKING THIS POSSIBLE.
BUSH BUNNY TIDBITS:
1. HOUSE #6 receives a roof over the sand pit/concrete play area just in time for the rainy season. Now that our infants are all walking, they needed a dry place to play for the next 4 months of the rainy season.
House #6 gets a roof over their sandpit and concrete play area before the rains hit
2. BABY SALVADOR (House #6) is all tuckered out after watching the construction crew build a roof over his sandpit. The new portable baby beds I had made are lightweight, and allow our mothers to have the children nap outside in the shade while they work. Much safer now that these tykes can climb out of bed themselves!
Toddler Salvador eagerly watched the building activity until he played out, taking a nap on one of the portable baby beds I had made
3. House #7 infants Fatima (now walking) but sitting in Foster Mother’s lap in photo, as well as Babies Gilda and Susanna (on right), all look on as Mama Gilda prepares food for lunch.
3 mothers from House #7 make good use of the shade tree while preparing food and watching their little ones.
With temps at 97°F/36°C, the shade of a great Mango Tree is the coolest place around. FYI: Gilda (11 months) and Susanna, (7 months), are just now strong enough to sit up alone. A real milestone as they were both super tiny at birth.
4. The Christmas Chickens (30KG/66lbs.) are in our own small chest freezer (locked), and being energized by electricity at a nearby friend’s home until the Christmas party on December 23rd. Electricity is coming to our homes, hopefully just after Christmas.
More on that after the holidays.
WE ARE MOST GRATEFUL TO ALL WHO CONTRIBUTED TO THE FABULOUS CHRISTMAS PARTY WE HOPE TO HAVE FOR THE CHILDREN THIS YEAR!
YOU ARE ALL SO LOVING AND KIND TO DO THIS FOR OUR CHILDREN. 🤗❤🐇
