Be Loved Josephine!


Do you recall some postings ago (Dec 16th and 20th) when I seemed to mix up people and names and wondered out loud just where ‘Josephine’ had come to me from? Happily, yesterday it all came clear, well, sort of…! After a joyful week my friend and I were visiting both child families in Bukedea the day before school was to start, having some fun and making sure all details ( including the need for all the children to eat a healthy

and hearty breakfast each day before going to school…) were in order and everyone was good to go! (Guess what the last thing was all of our little school goers were needing… haha… socks! Have your socks ever brought you total Joy? Have you ever completely Loved and Appreciated owning a pair, let alone some new ones…? Wow…these children sure do! And of course…lollipops are pretty great too!) While at Gideon’s, his neighbor came by with her newly born daughter (she is the same little one I posted a picture of last writing). When she handed me the tiny infant I asked the baby’s Mother what she had named her little one. She strongly, proudly replied ‘Josephine’! Ahhhh Josephine, Here You Are Darling Angel That You Are… Somehow, you whispered to us you were coming… and now we learn you were birthed into this world by your Loving HIV+ Mom a few short weeks ago, in a small mud and grass hut…

We Welcome You Precious Little One…We Thank You…We Love You!

More soon…
With Love, Cath xoxo
