At last I'm here and able to put some of our news down for you all :-)
|Similo's first day at Big School!|

The school day whizzes by and all too soon the homework hours are upon us.
Here Theresa practises her reading allowed, while I peel potatoes next to the Fish Pond.
By the end of the day the kids are ready for a final frolick and there are plenty of activities to keep them busy.
All of this goes on around the main body of our work which is ofcourse caring for and nurturing the tiniest of babies. This December we brought about 6 new babies into our Nest and it is so wonderful to know we are able to give them excellent care and the hope of a family.
Sadly with the joy always comes the possibility of heartache and this last Saturday we were all saddened to learn that one of our Nesties, who had been admitted to hospital due to a serious blood disorder, had passed away.
Many of out volunteers have never had to deal with death in any fashion let alone trying to come to terms with the death of a baby. It is a difficult and painful time and we appreciate all the thoughts, prayers and offers of support from our friends from every corner.
Please keep checking our website for other updates and information and feel free to send us feedback or suggestions ~ we are loving it!
We Love You All
