Psalm 127 v 3: “Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him”
Nokubonga spent the 1st year of her life with us at iKhaya. She is the most lovable and calm baby any mom could wish for. We enjoyed her immensely as she brought mush happiness to our home. She was placed with her new adoptive family this month just before her 1st birthday and returned to celebrate her special day with us. What a joy it was for us to enjoy her and share this moment with her and her parents.
We were delighted to bid her farewell into the next season of her life with her new folks who treasure and adore her. Thank you Nardus and Adelie for providing our baby girl with a family and home, to grow up in with a sense of belonging and much love.
We are thrilled to have another baby! Just a week old on admission and growing well and getting so big and alert so fast. Our first week was rather chaotic as we strived to establish a feeding and sleeping pattern. But we have won and now have a calm, well fed charming bundle of joy in our home!
Njabulo turned 6 and twins Ryan and Rihanah 8 years this month. Thanks once again to BWA Zululand and their sponsors for treating the birthday kids to cakes and awesome gifts. The joy this gesture brings is truly visible on their faces!
There is never a dull moment at iKhaya. We ensure that our children receive plenty stimulation and attention through various activities. From outdoor games, playdough, arts and crafts, dressing up times and playing with toys they kids get exposure to life’s lessons on respecting authority, sharing and playing nicely with friends. They get plenty fresh air and exercise in the process. Learning must be fun!
The dance year is drawing to an end and the excitement is brewing as the kids get ready for the year end show “Fantasyland” in December. We have 6 school going children who attend classes twice a week with Dance Academy in Empangeni. Besides the great fun and exercise they receive, our kids get to socialize with others, learn to be a part of a team and experience the discipline of dance.
We are part of a generous and loving local community. We were treated to lunch, gifts and parties this month by both private families and Air Products. Thanks to everyone who supports us with clothing donations, groceries, nappies and spoils for our kids. Partnering with us makes what we do so much easier!
Elinor started a lovely group for moms and tots to mingle and play in a safe environment. Our littlies were invited to join in and play too. The group meets on a Thursday afternoon at Solid Ground Church if you are interested in coming along. Just drop me a line for details.
Your used, in good condition household items, that you may be ready to part with, will be most useful and welcome in our homes. We currently have the need for the following:
With much love Loressa and Team
