Innocent deep brown eyes

Ahmed landed safely tonight at Ben Gurion airport for an urgent follow-up to his first surgery in Israel last year. When he was just two months old, Ahmed traveled to Israel with Shevet Achim to have a patent ductus arteriosus stent placed.

Ahmed possesses large, innocent deep brown eyes. He is one year and four months old. Ahmed also has a contagious smile. He smiles at almost everything–a yellow balloon, a Kurdish song about the days of the week, and even the other children. He is such a joy to be around. I wish we could capture his sweetness. His mother, Garda, also is incredibly kind and sweet. We are all looking forward to spending more time with them.

We are incredibly thankful for Ahmed’s safe return. We pray that Ahmed and his mother would have a wonderful, blessed second journey in Israel.
