Days 3 & 4 brought catching up with friends, visiting babies, putting more of the materials together, & going to a baby dedication.

 


Always, when I run into Tefera, he asks me about his sponsors at Grace Center, and he’s always wearing a smile ūüôā


It gets pretty dark at night.  



This is Baby Ruth. ¬†Isn’t she a cutie-pie! ¬†She’s doing well, and Mahalet (mom)is doing good.


Kids continue to play at the FNM Center… testing out the little bike I brought. ¬†Next week, I’ll get more pics of the kids in action…enjoying more of the new stuff ūüôā


Here is 1 small mobile chair (made by the volunteer team who were supposed to come last August) Thanks Everyone! ¬†The 2 chairs beside it are called “First Class Chairs”. ¬†They are adjustable in almost every way; however, there are 2 side adjusters that I thought came with the kit (but they didn’t)…so, I went to the metal market with Melaku and Meya to buy some squared metal tubing. ¬†We’ll build the adjusters on Tuesday b/c Monday is Labor Day in Ethiopia. ūüôā ¬†National Holiday, No Work.


Today (Saturday), I went to the baby dedication of our manager, Abraham. ¬†It was a great celebration. ¬†A really special¬†surprise was to see Mekdes come with her mom. ¬†Mekdes has been with Forgotten No More since Cheryl & I were operating out of our house. ¬†About 3 months ago, Mekdes was hit by a car. ¬†The driver was in the process of driving away when someone else seen that he was going to leave. ¬†Since someone else was there, the driver carried her to the hospital. ¬†One of her legs was broken. ¬†He covered all of the expenses and we’re so grateful that she is doing well now. ¬†


What got me a little teary was that she arrived in Ava’s “Cinderella” dress. ¬†Cheryl & I bought this dress for Ava as a special gift for attending her first day of Pre-School (8 years ago), and now Mekdes is wearing it for a special celebration. ¬†Isn’t life cool! ¬†


Tomorrow, Sunday, my plan is to visit some more friends…and hopefully visit our dog “Buna” who has been living at Grace Center’s Foster Girls Home for the past 5 months. ¬†Catch you later!
