Hope Family

Another reason August was so busy was because Catriona and I were working at Hope Family for 4 weeks. They were short on staff after the assistant manager left to get married and three other staff members left as well. This left them with only two full time staff members. Since Catriona and I already knew the kids well, Uncle Stu, the manager, asked us to help them out. Another girl, who did an IY placement at Hope Family last year came for a couple weeks as well. As you can see from the pictures there's a lot of personality in the abaana (Luganda for children). We learned a lot and had a lot of fun. Catriona and I were also able to build relationships with the staff members. Hope Family has some wonderful staff members who love the children so much. After spending so much time there, I'm missing those kids. They are special gifts from God and I am so blessed to know them. 
This little guy arrived in June weighing 1.2 kg.
Thankfully, he is getting much bigger now.
