This evening we welcomed our new Kurdish child Maryana. Luisa and I picked her and her wonderful mom up at the airport and brought them here to Ashdod where they could get some rest and good Kurdish food that the other moms prepared for them.
Maryana directly started playing with the other kids and seems to feel comfortable here. Her mom already knew two of the other moms so she was glad to come to a house where not everyone and everything is new.
Maryana turned just two years old a few weeks ago and is diagnosed with Tetralogy of Fallot. This means that she also has frequent episodes of de-saturation and is turning blue for a couple of minutes. Please pray that in her time in our house, Maryana will stay stable and safe! Let us pray for a successful treatment for our cute girl!
