A grandmother brought a baby, Aaron, to the orphanage today.  Her daughter is not well and is staying with relatives while she the grandmother takes care of the baby along with 4 other children.  Aaron was getting only one or two meals a day and is 8 months old.  Our family agreed to take him for the night to find out if he sleeps through the night and help get him get on a feeding schedule before moving him to one of the houses.  This afternoon, he began feeling quite warm so I took his temperature and it was 102.5!  We tested him and he has malaria.  We are so thankful he is here to get the medical care he needs.  Needless to say, we will be keeping him a few more days.  He is a sweetie and has captured our hearts.
