A New Daycare Center at Kay JuliaOct 28
We have just opened our new daycare center at Kay Julia. Our first little child is Katia. Katia is a three year old girl born with hydrocephalous, a disease where she has too much water on her brain causing brain damage and developmental delays.Even with her handicap, she is so smart, feisty and knows exactly what she wants!! She has been coming to Kay Julia since May of 2011 to receive physical therapy from one of our missionaries, Christy Worsoe. Katia’s mother was taught exercises to do with her everyday. They were also sent to a free clinic where she could get therapy every Wednesday. Unfortunately, Katia’s mother died this past summer, leaving Katia in the care of her elderly grandma. Her grandma had been doing her best to care for Katias needs however, recently it became too much for her and she was considering putting Katia in an orphanage. At this point, Diddi decided to open the daycare center to take care of Katia during the day so her grandma can go to work at the market to help support her family. Katia stays with us all day and returns to her family after dinner. She is thriving with this new arrangement. Most of all she is able to stay with the people that truly love her.
