Today is a very special day as 5 year old Zawadi, who has been in the care of Colleen's Place of Hope for many years, finds a new home with Noula and Donald, two people who have come to love her dearly over the past 6 months while waiting for the fostering process to become official.  Zawadi's name means "Gift/Present" in her native language of Swahili and for Noula and Donald who are officially fostering her as of today, she is truly a gift as they celebrate to welcome her into her new home.  Noula and Donald cannot thank Bev, Charlene and Karin of A Reaching Hand enough as she believes that without our involvement this would not have happened. She also thanked their family and friends who have supported them during this process.

To Zawadi Noula said "Now spread your wings and fly like the beautiful butterfly that you are. We adore you!"

We at A Reaching Hand live for moments like these and we wish them all the love in the world! We are so happy!
