I remember the first day I met him. He came through the door of the baby home in another volunteers arms and was handed to me. I remember saying “this is the most perfect looking baby I’ve ever seen.” And he were so hungry. They told me his name was Tumaini, which means “hope” in Swahili. What a beautiful name, I thought. How incredibly fitting for this little child who was left outside, alone, only a few days old. Someone didn’t believe there was hope for this child, but against everything here he is, Tumaini, Hope.

I remember the nurse who was doing his rounds at the orphanage when he arrived. He looked at me feeding him and he said, “If you stay with him, he will come to know you like his mother, if you are just the constant person in his life.” I don’t know what prompted him to say this, and at the time I really didn’t think much about it. After all there are so many hurdles to adoption in Tanzania and I had only been in the country for 3 months at the time. 

God spoke through that nurse and a seed was planted in my heart. I was able to watch this little boy grow and thrive. I was there when he was sick and in health. I celebrated each of his milestones and birthdays with him. 

We are now pursuing to finalize this adoption. Tumaini has been living with us via a foster care agreement since October 2017. We would love nothing more than to make him a Mollel forever!  We need your help to make this happen. And what a better time  than my birthday month of July! 

After preliminary meetings with a lawyer we are estimating our initial costs for the Tanzanian portion of his adoption to be around $3,000. We have already had some friends jump start on our need and we would be so thankful if you could partner with us in this way.
