MICRO MIRACLE FOUNDATION
How does one decline the privilege of looking after someone else's child, especially when they are a miracle in themselves.
Well, that's what happened to us.
Mom past away, Dad was studying in the Northern Cape, Mom's family weren't interested in caring for their sister's special needs son. The first two pediatric neurologists I took him to, told me that he has no brain and I should place him into a home as he won't live to see his 1st birthday - Ofentse was 5-months at the time. That was 2-years ago; which is also how long he has been living with us.
Yes, it is nothing short of a miracle that Ofentse has defied the never ever list of syndromes that he has been diagnosed with. His physical progress is nothing short of hard-work, first hand knowledge and wonderfully generous people. I am not denying that this journey hasn't been plain sailing. I would like to thank Charnel and the Micro Miracle Foundation for assisting us on our journey. As we don't have the money to pay for us to be his legal guardians officially, we have been unable to put him onto our medical aid. Ofentse is therefore a patient at Rahima Moosa hospital.
Although I only have praise for the doctors, Rahima Moosa doesn't have equipment that is able to assist Ofentse in reaching his full potential; or even just be comfortable.
Liele did we know how extremely expensive anything "special needs" is.
