Turning one

Shortly after Ahmed and his mother where discharged from Sheba hospital to our community home in Jaffa last week, we celebrated his first birthday together. We are all very happy that Ahmed didn’t have to celebrate his birthday in the hospital.

Co-workers Bria and Joanne made a really nice cake for him which we all ate together. They choose some nice clothes and a toy for him as his birthday present.
Ahmed’s mother was very happy and thankful about this attention and effort and had everyone gather together for nice picture-taking and to eat a piece of cake.

I hope that even though they couldn’t celebrate his first birthday back home in Kurdistan, they still enjoyed their day together with all the other lovely families in their temporary Jaffa home.

I think it’s really nice that none of these folks are going through their difficult times alone, but with each other. Let’s pray for a blessed coming year for our dear Ahmed.
