Twin joy for Grace and Oscar

Grace and Oscar who were born on the same date
Six year old Grace Webster is visiting the Happy House with her family and sumsup her feelings in two sentences!
"The Happy House is really good. I am really excited to see Oscar"
As we told you earlier in the week  Grace is there getting to know our family and their own sponsor child Oscar,  with her mum Louise, dad Garry and little sister, Alice.
Grace and Oscar consider themselves twins as they share the same birthday!
Louise says: "We arrived in Watamu on Sunday after a very long journey.
 We were all very excited about visiting the Happy House and especially about meeting Oscar.
 Last time we were here the Happy House was in the final stages of being built and we couldn’t wait to see it full of happy children.
 On Monda, Uncley Billy came to collect us from the hotel in the Happy House bus, and there sat in the front with him was a very smart and handsome Oscar!
Uncle Billy took us to the Happy House where all the children sang a welcome song. 
It all felt quite surreal. Part of me felt I already knew many of the children from sending out their profiles to the sponsors, and being so passionate about the charity I felt as if part of me already belonged here.
As Uncle Billy showed us around the Happy House which is mind blowing, we couldn’t quite believe what has been achieved by one person’s determination. 
Over the week we have popped in and out of the Happy House, playing football with the children, cuddling the babies and generally trying to take it all in.
Seeing Grace, Alice and Oscar together is amazing. It certainly feels good to be back.”
