Ezra David Johnson

This tiny baby weighed just 2.5 kilos when he was abandoned at the big government hospital in Arusha, Tanzania. He was born Aug 11, 2015. He is very sweet and loves to be held and loves his bottle. We try not to judge these moms who abandoned their babies. Our joy is to love and care for these little ones. We will be looking for a forever family to adopt this precious little guy. Due to Tanzanian law, out of country adoptions do not work out. You must live in Tanzania for 3 years before you can adopt. While Ezra lives at Neema House Arusha we will need help caring for him. It costs Neema around $300 a month to keep a baby at Neema.

Orphans are easier to ignore before you know their names. They are easier to ignore before you see their faces. It is easier to pretend they’re not real before you hold them in your arms. But once you do, everything changes.
