This is Monita. I was with her 2 weeks ago. She is in the care of Amahoro orphanage in Kampala, Uganda, and its head honcho, Caleb. We have supported his orphanages for years. Monito was found on the streets at 4 months old. When Caleb took her to the hospital, the doctors told him she would only live for maybe 2 weeks. She had severe cerebral palsy and could not swallow. Some days later, Pediatricians from the US visiting Kampala hospital gave him the same diagnosis. Caleb told Lydia, who was to be her chief caregiver, even if she only lives 2 weeks, she will be loved the entire time.

Lydia began massaging her muscles multiple times a day. Caleb called us about her and we provided a specially made wheel chair so that she could go outside and watch the children play. They also secured an IV so they could feed her intravenously.

Monita is now 4 years old. She uses a walker to get around and can now sit up on her own. She is also able to eat strained fruits and vegetables. This, my friends, is a living miracle.
