Junior: A Miracle Story

unnamed-1


Throughout Beatrice’s last pregnancy, she experienced tremendous conflict in her marriage. The stress significantly impacted her health, leading to Junior’s premature birth.unnamed

Beatrice began working at Amani ya Juu in Nairobi, Kenya when her new baby, Junior, was just two weeks old.

As Junior grew, Beatrice realized he was not developing normally. At 3-years-old, he could neither walk nor speak.With the help of donors, volunteers, and Amani ya Juu, Junior began using a walking aid and attending therapy.

“The day Amani ladies saw Junior walk was like a miracle,” said Gladys, an Amani Kenya administrator.

Last year, Junior began school. He is beginning to make progress with his speech.

“(I love) being able to hear him say ‘Mama’ and ‘Wewe’ (‘you’),”said Beatrice.

Junior is now 5 years old and the Amani family is more than happy to watch him walk everyday! We are so thankful for this miracle from God!
