Reunited with the family

This past Wednesday we had a nice farewell party for the lovely Lia as she was finally ready to return to her family in Kurdistan. It was really nice and we shared some nice words and what we all love about Lia and her mother and how happy all of us were that we’ve met them.

It really was a privilege for us to share a bit of their lives. Lia’s mother expressed that she is very thankful to God and to the hospital and Shevet Achim. Lia’s mother is a really good mother.

This past Thursday, Sebastian and I brought Lia her lovely mother and another Kurdish family who were ready to travel back home to Kurdistan. The next day, they called us to say that they arrived back at their home in Kurdistan safely.

It was lovely to see them reunited with their loved ones and to see them very happy on the phone. Lia needs to have follow-up appointments with the cardiologist in Kurdistan. She is still on quite a few medicines which they want to wean her off of, step by step, in Kurdistan.

Thank you for your prayers during all their time here.
