This is our first year doing birthdays. Ruzindana says he's 13 today, but based on his size when we first took him in 9 years ago, we think he's fifteen. This was also our first shared meal in the new house. The house is fabulous, but lacks all fittings or furniture.
Finally, after years of planning, praying, receiving donations and pouring ourselves into this project, the children arrived at their permanent home next door to us at Lakeside. It was a momentous day, although for the moment it is still temporary because we haven't purchased a minibus. This means the children will stay in their rental home during the school week for a little while longer. They all had a wonderful time exploring and playing in the open space.
