Today was special beyond words

Today was special beyond words

Ken and his two families…..

Its 12:34 am and someone has finally got off the internet so that I can upload photos, so I will blog, but probably for not as long as I would like…because I need to get up in 6 hours.

A year ago when I was back at Go Vap I was in the babies room for 10 minutes before lunch.  I would often do this as its a nice ‘wind down’ from working in the terminal ward, its a nice time to see the babies and help with feeding.  Anyway, this one particular day there were a few families in the room with the kids.  I plonked myself down on the mat and started talking to the babies. Of course I noticed my favourite little boy and I watched him walk around the room and saw that he was spending time with an Irish couple.  I thought they must just be other visitors that are paraded through the centre and didn’t think much of it.  I talked about how special this little boy was and said “you should take him home”…to which they replied “we are”.  Holy crap did I feel emotional!

Emotional to bare witness to a dream some true for this family and a pivotal moment in Ken’s life.  I will never forget that day and even now I get tingles when I reminisce.  

Sabrina and I kept in contact and today I arranged a surprise Skype meeting with Ken’s Go Vap mum.  It was beautiful and I think through the grainy reception Ken saw her and recognised her.  He changed from a little wriggling boy to a boy glued to the screen….searching the computer screen and I guess his little brain was being triggered by the surroundings that were once his home, 4 walls that he spent 95% of his life in.

Then I come home to this lovely email….. 🙂 🙂 🙂

The internet is crappy again, so I will blog tomorrow.

Love you all, thanks for reading and following my journey….for being with me in spirit and for your support.
