First, I have to share about Moise. He continues to look good and gain weight! He even smiled at me a few times. Whenever he sees someone he reaches out his hands and sort of waves them. He holds a special spot in my heart, and I continue to be so happy that he is gaining weight. For a long time I have been very worried about him, given he was so so skinny and weak. What an indomitable spirit he has! He is about 11 months old now.
Next is little Atosha, with the sparkle in her eye. I have mentioned her before but just had to put another picture of her up! Sweet girl! She turns 4 in August.
Little Chito was sitting on her own, big girl (though in a tripod, for support). I felt sad that I didn't have a lot of time to spend with her this visit. She needs a lot of love and attention to bring that smile out. Her legs are very thin and underdeveloped, until very recently she has only been flat in her crib for most of her life, given watered down porridge since she was 6 months old. Ah, little heart, hold fast!
Little Chikuru, very cute and happy little 2 year old.
This big boy is one of the oldest boys at the orphanage, full of life!
