We love welcoming the lost home! If you missed our December Ingane Yami Newsletter, you would have missed the very exciting news. We welcomed home a new little boy to Ingane Yami over the holidays! A beautiful 5 year old boy named Thami.

We have celebrated a handful of Christmas’s welcoming the lost home. Last year, it was little 2 year old Yamkela. In 2016 it was Simbonge and our beautiful house mom, Ntkozo. And in 2014, just a few days before his birthday, it was Sbu and his biological sister Sane who came to call Ingane Yami home.

With the arrival of Thami we cannot help but feel like there is something special,= that is on the brink of taking place. This entire year our social work team have been fighting to get children into our care. They’ve had to walk a long journey with local social workers, helping them understand who we are and what we do. Our team has invested hours and hours of their time building relationships, welcoming the department to the Village, and visiting transitional homes to make them aware of us as a permanent placement option.  And finally, we feel, we are making breakthrough.

We are praying Thami’s arrival is the start of a new season. A season of growth, of rescue, of building upon the years of foundations which we have built.

Thami, welcome home! We cannot wait to welcome more little ones like you to call our own!

If you would like to sponsor little Thami, contact Patricia to find out how!
