Friends from the other side of the world

The smallest resident of our home, Mr Lawi, had some special visitors today! Here he is with his mum, having a cuddle with Nicole with her three beautiful children. Nicole’s parents, David and Susan, live in the USA. They are ‘local leaders’ for Lawi.

Like Lawi’s mum, they are also parents to a son with Down Syndrome, so little Lawi has captured their heart. Their son, Nicole’s brother, is called Seth. He is an adult now. Nicole shared the story of how Seth also needed a heart surgery when he was a baby. She brought some family photos to look at together and today many more pictures were taken, as if Lawi’s story is like another chapter in the story of Seth’s heart surgery.
