Baby Gilbert is born today at 9.15 a.m. The mother is out of the theater still very weak , it is likely we shall be here until Wednesday of next week then we shall be planing to go back to Kasese.
Thank you so much without you this would have been impossible I called him Gilbert to recognize my friends that played a very big role for him to be born. Now it gives a lot of challenges , what will I ever do to friends. they have done so much to me. Thank you
