Start of a new chapter

As Mama and Papa closed the door on their temporary home in Poulton for the last time, they ended another chapter of their remarkable story.
Mama's health forced their reluctant return to the UK almost four months ago when, after seeing x-rays, orthopaedic surgeon Steve Mannion  warned that that a plate inserted  in her leg to repair multiple fractures may not hold and that if it were fail, the technology available to surgeons in Kenya would have nothing to offer her,
Knowing she had no other option, Mama heeded his advice and and she and Papa headed back here to a home hastily found and furnished for them by Libby with much help from generous friends and wellwishers.
With their complete and unfailing love for each other to hold them together through another enforced separation from the wonderful family they have built at the Happy House, they have focussed on getting Mama, slowly, but surely, out of a wheelchair, on to crutches, and from two sticks to one!

This morning, Mama will walk out of Mombasa airport, alongside Papa, to the reception of a lifetime from the whole Happy House family.
All the friends here who have made their time in the UK as enjoyable as possible are just thrilled that they are home sooner than they thought would be possible and send them lots of love as they start a new and happier chapter of their Road to the Happy House.
We love you Mama and Papa, we wish you good health and the happiest times ahead.
 God bless.
