Guess where I am? I’m back in the village and my return was a bit sooner than I expected. However, I was happy to offer to help with orientation and they took me up on it. Not just for Nairobi, but also for upcountry as well. Who knew. So here I am and it’s hot up here! Summer in Africa at the equator… I’d almost forgotten about the heat after so much rain for the past few months. It’s fun to be back in the village though it really makes me miss the gorgeous countryside, the friends, our great house, the work and kids, etc.
Speaking of kids, here are some pics I promised to post a while back. I mentioned Sarah back in October, my little baby with the jack-o-lantern smile, who I took for cleft lip surgery.
She had a little infection after the surgery, but came back to the centre a few times the last month I was there just to check in and say hi. I’m not 100% content with the surgery results, but I think it’s a huge improvement. I think it changes everything with how Sarah will grow up interacting with family and other kids. Just as important, I’m also incredibly pleased to know that Sarah’s mom is so happy and so much more confident taking Sarah out in public. Another lovely success story from the village… go team!
