My name is Memory Kayira (girl) and I was born on 26 May, 2013 at Ekwendeni hospital with a birth weight of 3.1kg. I was very happy and excited the first minutes of my life. Even my relatives and others were happy to welcome me to this world after expecting me with much care and love for nine months. My mum was tired and exhausted after delivering me and I was waiting for her recovery from labour fatigue so that we could rejoice and thank God together.
As I was waiting to rejoice with mum and other relatives, something ruined our happiness. My mother's health was deteriorating after she had delivered me. She was breathing heavily while the nurses were untiringly attending to her. They rushed her to theatre room for more treatment but sad news came to us, after some minutes, that my mother had passed away. Everybody was putting on the face of disbelief as nobody expected this to happen. It was shocking and sad indeed when I magined a life without a mother and to be called a single orphan! Oh my God, you gave me the mother and you have taken her back even before I could feel her warmth and smile. I was touched and weeped emotionally though people couldn't notice what was going on in my mind. May Her Soul Rest In Peace!
I know my father loves me and the rest of the children. But when I saw my age, I thought my father couldn't manage me as I need a lot like motherly love and many more. He hasn't have enough to care for me even the aunties are old and unable to provide for my needs at my tender age. Despite all these concerns in my mind, God was with me and encouraging me. He opened up the way for me to be cared for by Mzuzu Crisis Nursery. It was a good news to hear about and it was worthy thanking Jesus for His wonderful love and care. The Nursery and the Social Welfare people came to rescue me in my village on May 31, 2013. They dressed me up and fed with milk, well prepared. Hahahaha I took 50 mls at once. Relatives bid farewell to me and they were very happy. My dad and relatives promised me that they would be coiming to visit me at the Nursery. We are arrived at the Nursery and I was stunned to find how healthy and happy the friends I found are. They welcomed me and weighed me and I lost 0.3kg after living for six days. These people are so caring and loving. My crib was well decorated and prepared just for a little creature like me. My living God, please, be with these people and everyone here at the Nursery. I am happy here and looking forward to the day I will reunite with my family. Thank you Jesus for your mercy, grace, love and care.
