The first word I think of for Leen and the time she’s had with us is thriving. She’s been enjoying the time with our community and with the other families. You can see how well-loved this girl is when you look at the smile on her face.

Her mother is constantly baking and coming up with new games to play with Leen, even getting the other children involved as well. Today Leen enjoyed using a tube as her mode of communication, taking the other end to others’ ears like playing a game of telephone. It is so sweet to see how much Leen has been growing in her time here. Each day she gets more comfortable with everyone and comes more out of her shell.

We are thankful for the good news of Leen’s upcoming eye surgery and we pray for this time of waiting to be a blessing for Leen and her mother.
