I just heard about a little boy who we’ve had since he was 1 day old. He has been in our care for over 3 years and every week he has said goodbye to his friends who have all been placed into families.
This week, this little lad had his first visit with his permanent new foster family that we found for him. When he came back to our centre he proudly told us “Even I now have a Mummy”.
Apparently when he met his new Mummy she told him “I am going to be your Mummy”. Instead of running up to hug her he broke down in tears.
Our aim is to provide short-term care to abandoned babies and place them into a family – the right family – within six months. For this little boy, things didn’t go to plan. We weren’t able to do what we so desperately wanted to do for him. But now he has found his mummy and this is the best Christmas present any of us could wish for.
Thank you so much, we have been able to do this because of all of you.
