Irene seems to be fitting in just fine. She is the newest arrival here at A Future and a Hope. This past Wednesday her Aunt dropped her off, and we have been rearranging her life ever since.
Already she is in school, she had missed the beginning because her school was closed due to the violence in Nakuru. Kate took her to the school uniform shop and she was outfitted with uniform, shoes, socks, and some school supplies. We still need to buy the text books, but she has already spent one full day at the school.
I believe she has been incorporated into the other girls dance routines. She has her own bed, and has enjoyed good hearty meals since she stepped through our doors.
This is another orphan that can be hopeful again. I thank God that we are allowed to care for such children. In His eyes they are the most important young women on the planet. When He looks down at us, people such as these girls are the ones His eyes search the Earth for. They are blessed, and that makes me proud to be a part of their lives.
