Birthday: October 29, 2010
Have you ever met someone who is the bright spot in your day? The person who always makes you smile. That person is Christine. She is a different flavor from everyone else—her very own spice. She is bold, funny, loquacious, and of course, very intelligent. When given the chance to observe her, it becomes obvious that she will absorb all the colors of life, unabashedly and with passion.
These things weren’t immediately obvious when she arrived at Rehema Home Nairobi. She was delivered to us because her mother was unable to take care of her. She was underweight for her age (almost two), but she was generally in good health. Her first couple of weeks were filled with screaming and a lot of “stink eye”, but when she realized felt safe, she let down her guard and embraced our family.
Today, Christine continues to be a bright spot in our Home. She loves anything and everything artistic. She finds a lot of enjoyment and confidence when making crafts. She also takes a lot of pride in her schooling and strives to be a great student.
