In October 2008 my life turned upside down and it has never been the same since!
A policewoman knocked on my door holding an 8 week old baby boy. He was wrapped in a towel
and all I remember were these huge big brown eyes starring at me and a big blue dummy in his mouth!
This baby had been found in the bushes opposite our home, and we were asked if we could look after
him for a few days while they looked for his family. We pastor a church in our area and so we were
considered a safe place by the local people in our community who had directed the police to us.
We opened our home to this beautiful precious little boy who stole our hearts from the beginning and
my whole family fell hopelessly in love with him.
We gave him the name BENJAMIN, which means "Beloved Son of the Lord", because we knew God
had a destiny, plan and purpose for this special child of HIS!
Benjamin's mom was found and for vaious reasons she made the decision to sign him off for adoption.
We were thrilled as by this time we were hopelessly in love with him and him with us. Today I have a
lovely relationship with Benjamins biological mother and she visits him as often as she wants to.
Benjamin feels quite special that he has two moms - a tummy mommy and a heart mommy!
My beautiful Ben has turned my world upside down in more ways than I can describe and impacted
more lives around us than most adults do in a life time!!
