A Christmas miracle

This tiny mite is a Christmas miracle.
Born in the early hours of December 25, he was dumped in a pit latrine.
He was clinging to life when he was found and taken to safety.
As public medical facilities have been grounded for more than a month because of a national doctors strike, the tiny newborn was taken to the private hospital, Tawfiq, in Malindi where he received care and then moved to a rescue centre in the town,
Police are investigating in the hope of tracing his mother,.
On Thursday, Uncle Billy received a call from the rescue centre asking Happy House to give him a home and, as we all know,  at Happy House  there is "always room for another"
Uncle Billy said the baby boy, named for the day he was born, must have been premature: "But he is notably a strong fighter and a good feeder and expected to grow in no time. 
"All his new brothers and sisters were so happy to welcome him. 
"Aunties Millie and Janet had met with the rescue centre matron so as to ensure his smooth transition". 
Welcome home baby Emmanuel Christmas!
