With God, nothing is impossible."

The Amazing Miracle of Finding Shadadi’s Mother!

Diana, Shadadi and Tish

Tuesday, 1 December 2009 was perhaps the greatest day in the life of our "orphan" Shadadi. He was 5 years old when his family was fleeing from war in Burundi, he being carried on the back of his his mother’s brother, Bina, who was only 12 years old at the time. Sadly, they got separated from the family, and got lost, and were not able to find the family again. Bina cared for his little nephew with great devotion, bringing him down, through many difficulties and many countries to South Africa in 2001, where they were placed in the care of Mercy House.
By God’s amazing co-incidence, they found out that a young Rwandese orphan girl, who was living at Mercy House at the time, actually knew Sifa, Shadadi’s mother’s sister, whom she had met in a refugee camp with her in the DRC. She even had the telephone number of Sifa, who had in the meantime been re-settled in the U.S.A. This was a key discovery, since they were able to contact her. This led to Sifa and ourselves to commence the mammoth task - of trying to find one woman somewhere in Africa, Shadadi’s mother. We did not even know whether she was alive or dead! Our chain of searching led to getting to know a distant relative, Uncle Theo, in Cape Town, who finally became instrumental in God’s plan that, in 2009, Sara, Shadadi’s mother, was found to still be alive and located. Through the assistance of the same Uncle Theo and Sifa, Sarah, Shadadi’s mother, arrived in Cape Town on Friday 20 November 2009. Uncle Theo immediately passed the amazing news on to us Shadadi, now 16, had not seen her since age 5 and could not even remember what his mom looked like. She, in turn, had always presumed her first born to have been killed in their flight from the war in 1998. Shadadi has never worn such a smile as the day we took him to the airport, Tuesday 1 December to meet the mother he had missed for so long, in fact for 11 years...
"NOTHING is impossible for God...."
