Maternity visit!

Two staff members and the oldest girl currently living with us, had to return to her village in the mountains. This village is about an hour and a half away and the road there leads right by where a woman, who used to live with us and later became a colleague and then moved away with her husband, lives with her newborn baby son. Two birds with one stone, nice work. The funny thing is that the staff in the blue shirt was a “mother” at the time this woman lived with us in the girls home. Later this woman became a colleague for a little while, so she too was a “mother” to the girls. And now she herself has become a mother and has been living with her biological mother during her pregnancy because she and her husband normally live in Bangkok. It is encouraging to see that it is going well with her and her family.
