It seems that time at
Kasisi runs faster than elsewhere!
The days are short and
when I have a quiet moment in the evening, I realise how many
things were not done, how many problems were not solved and how
many words were not spoken. Then I remember hundreds of hugs I
received and thousands of smiles I noticed during the past day!
Everything else can wait!
Children and their joyful
faces fill every corner of Kasisi making this place a small
piece of heaven on earth.
During the past few months
many children were reunited with their extended families. It is
always a very happy event when they come back for a visit. Then
we can see that with our help they started a new chapter of the
life that they should have from the beginning: in the loving
environment of natural family.
Many more children joined
us in hope to find safety, peace and love. We do everything we
can to make them feel at home and when the right time comes we
will be happy to let them go and face the future on another
level of life.
As I prepare myself for a
short trip to the United States, I wonder what message I should
carry with me from this home called Kasisi.
The feeling of joy and
deep gratitude comes first as I think of the Country and its
wonderful people who opened their hearts and homes for Tamara,
Nenani and many more of my children to receive great education,
a lot of love and safe future.
I hope your prayer and
thoughts will be with me as I travel.
May God be with you all
and may He reward you for everything you have done and keep
doing for us.
