|Two young desperate mothers in need of prayer|
I did not want to show the mother's faces to protect their privacy.
Thank you all for praying for these mothers and their children. We met with both mother's and the authorities on Thursday...which was a very long meeting. Please continue to pray for them as they need to know how much Jesus cares for them. The mother on the right signed papers to give up her four year old for adoption. As many times as we offered her other options. A house, a job, land.....she denied all of them and continued to state that she did not want her child. My heart was torn apart when she walked away from my house leaving her four year old daughter behind.
The mother on the left, who came with her Uncle and older sister to discuss the future of herself and her children. After many difficult discussions and choices, the Uncle wanted to go home and consult with the rest of the family (this is typical Kipsigis culture) about giving the children up for adoption. So the Bemm family is still a family of 11 and we will wait the decision of the mother and family. We are seeing that C the twenty month old is fitting in nicely with all of our other toddlers. The baby now two weeks old, is being spoiled by all of our older children. Thank you so much for all your prayers.
