Baby Rachid

We received a new baby last week named, Rachid. He is 4 months old and his mama just died. Rachid's story is that his mama was very young and was engaged to be married. While she was waiting for her wedding date, it become known that she was pregnant and not by her fiance.

The waiting husband agreed to take Rachid's mother as his wife but refused to take the baby as his own. While the family was waiting for Rachid to be old enough to be weaned, his mother became sick and died.

We will take care of Rachid until he is one year old and then he will integrate into the family of his father where one of his father's wives will care for Rachid.
