I know I wrote about this story a long time ago now. It's been almost a month since Claire picked Selemani up from the orphanage to be her son. I wanted to post some pictures of the event, though, because it was special and I want to show you a glimpse of what other orphanages look like. The picture above is of Claire holding her official letter of permission to start fostering Selemani. Upendo, our social worker is sitting with her.

I was quite ready to adopt the kitten while Claire adopted Selemani, but they told me no.
