A bunch of random things

This week has been so much fun! So much has happened it may be hard to write about all of it. Here are some of the highlights of my week.

Yesterday, I went with my mom, the matron, and the Social Worker to pick-up Baby Favour. She is the baby sister of one of the special needs boys here. As we pulled up to her village I was watching the people. Immediatly, I saw their mom, and I was sure it was her because she looks exactly like Caleb! We took Favour and her Mama to the hospital to get checked out. Right now Favour seems to be a normal little girl! Then, we ate lunch and headed back to GSF. Favour's new Auntie's, and 'Brothers and Sisters' came running out to meet her. Soon she was settled into her new home.

These events are out of order - Oops! The team who is here right now painted some of the kids faces. Seeing all of their faces painted and seeing the smiles when you comment on it was so fun are some pictures.

The last team that came helped the kids make Tie-Dye shirts. So, we have been seeing a lot of them around. The other day the babies were all wearing them during their daily walk. We had them all hold someone else's hand. They were all so cute and I was able to get some really good pictures of them.

All of the babies in their Tie-Dye shirts. It's hard to get a good picture of all of them.

On Friday, Auntie Amanda came back to GSF. She was deathly sick so we were all very glad to see her back at GSF. She came back with a team so they told the team to get out first so the kids would talk to them first. Then, she got off the bus and about 50 kids surrounded her shouting "Auntie Amanda! Auntie Amanda!"

Little Sebastian's Grandparents came to visit him on Friday. It was so fun to see them watch Seb walking around and making nosies and laughing. Here is him with his JaJa in October.

Here is Sebastian now!

One of the other things that has been going on lately is all Primary Schools in Uganda do different sports competitions every school term (there are 3 terms in a year). This term is ball sports (Soccer, Volley Ball, and Net Ball). GSF school has been doing really good this year. They even did some of the competitions at GSF today.

Here are some of the pictures Iv'e taken lately that I really like.

I was trying to figure out what call this post and what to write about and hope came to my mind. There could not be a more perfect subject for this post.

Ssubi's auntie brought her to the clinic about a week ago. She is four years old and has CP and can not talk or walk. She is a beautiful little girl and her auntie loves her very much and does all she can for sweet little Ssubi.

Matthew also has CP but he has lived at GSF since he was 2 days old. He can not walk or talk on his own but is a very smart little boy. He has just recently gotten a new walker and can walk to school with it. He loves to walk around in it.

Lastly, Happy 12th Birthday to another MK at GSF, Hope.

Here is a verse I found about hope and some pictures.

"So the poor have HOPE, and injustice shuts it's mouth." Job 5:16



One more thing I wasn't going to write about but I found some songs that I really like so I leave you with some links that you can click on and read the lyrics. ;
