James was rescued by a relative Dan Gichane from a mother who wanted to abort twins seven months pregnancy. Gichane called the home to find out if we could help and we promised we could to be able to save the lives of the mother and the twins. She gave birth on 6th January 2014 but lost one baby. We were sad and hoped the remaining one would make it. The mother refused to breastfeed young James for the twelve hours she was with him. Gichane and his wife went for the mother and her baby and helped discharge her from Pumwani maternity.
The director met with them and conducted oral interview with the mother but at that stage she need to heal and resolve whatever issues she was so upset about. Gichaneâs family knows where she is and they talk to her about the boy and the day she will be ready she will take her son.
The center therefore has no legal document but we worry, her resolve is so drastic. The father to these babies disappointed her and she had come from an abusive marriage and this second didnât even start, the guy took off as soon as he realized njeri as she is called was expectant and has two other children with her former husband.james has grown well. He is a very sharp boy. He has no baby language he speaks straight. He is walking and teeth have grown though he normally has trouble with his tummy while teething.
