We’ve gotten a bit behind on our introductions of new kids at Precious Kids Center. We grew so fast and things got hectic so we have many new friends that have yet to be introduced. Stay tuned for more posts introducing all of our new precious ones.
We met Esther after getting a call from Daniel Wekesa’s mom about a child in need, so we drove out to see her. She was living with her grandmother, who had Esther plus two other small children in her care. Her daughters kept having children and dropping them off at their mom’s house to be taken care of.
The day we went to pick up Esther we met her mother, who talked the entire way to Precious Kids Center about how much of a burden her child was. She is four years old and was unable to walk, but was a little chatter box.
She instantly adapted to her new life at Precious Kids Center and made big improvements after having her nutritional needs met. After only four short months of physical therapy she began to take her first steps and she is now able to walk independently.
Esther is an absolute joy to have around and we can’t wait to see how she continues to improve.
Shirlene is another one of our boarding school kids who goes home for the school holidays. Her mother brought her one day looking for a safe place for her to learn. Shirlene has Autism and is working on being able to walk independently, but can take steps on her own. Please keep this little one in your prayers. Her health is very up and down and when she gets sick it takes her a long time to recover.
We love having Shirlene around and love seeing her sweet smile.
Meet Caleb Wafula
Caleb is the sweetest thirteen year old boy you will ever meet. He has one of the best smiles around and is rarely in a bad mood. Caleb’s mom also brought him to the house in hopes to find a school for him. After he was with us for a few weeks we realized that he seemed to have some heart problems so we took him for a check up and an EKG and found that he has two huge holes in his heart and problems with all of the valves. The doctor told us that it is something that could have been repaired if it had been found when he was younger, but it is difficult now at his age. We were told that the prognosis for this condition is not good, but are taking him for a second opinion in September 2018 to see if there is anything else that they can do. Please keep this sweet boy in your prayers.
