Frankie Lyseri Mollel

Frankie weighed only 8 lbs at nine months old. He is the smallest of Maasai triplets (see Yacinta and Lucia) whose mother did not have enough breast milk to feed them all. His family lives in a remote village about 80 miles from Arusha. He weighed less than 5 lbs when he came to us, and was very frail and sick. Frankie spent nine days in the hospital. He is better now, but the doctors still don’t know why he is so small. He is one of the cutest and most pleasant babies at Neema House.

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.
