Just before heading to Uganda Emma had mentioned that Bethany had requested to have a watch of her own. She had seen someone with one and thought she should have one too. After all, she is 12 years old!
As it turns out, Bethany is one of the oldest girls at The Gem Foundation. She has severe CP which makes her mobility very limited and leaves her with a difficult time verbally. Yet, in spite of her struggles, she has a ready smile for anyone she meets. Her joy oozes!! In fact she’s one of those people “who has never met a stranger!” Her joy is contagious!!
Why would I miss this opportunity to remind Bethany just how much our family loves her? I asked Liberty and her friend, Emily, if they could go search for one that I could take. She texted me a few pictures and we finally decided on one.
My first day at The Gem I couldn’t wait for Bethany to come home from school.
And this video captures her perfectly!!
“Hey Mikey, I think she like it!”
Happy Saturday from Uganda!
