5 JulThe adventures of Alice

Alice arrived to the Butterfly Home when she was nearly two months old. She was an alert little girl, who was always hungry and would let everyone know when it was time for her milk! She quickly had all of the ayis wrapped around her fingers and everyone fell in love with her. At the beginning, we were unsure what medical care she would need and we showered her with love, attention and gave her good nutrition until she was a little bigger and fit for investigations.


As the months went by, Alice continued to thrive. Her favourite place to be was up in someone’s arms and the ayis were more than happy with that! They always made sure she was in the prettiest of clothes and loved to put bows in her hair – although from a young age she would quickly grab them and take them out! She was a sociable little girl, who loved to be at the centre of the activities.

When she was about 18 months old, she graduated from the Butterfly Home. She was was starting to become more active, wanting to explore more with children of her own abilities and we knew it was time for her to spread her wings and move to another part of the social welfare institute. A hospice was not the right environment for this little sweetie to thrive in. She was very close by to the Butterfly Home so our staff could keep a close eye on her progress and she continued to thrive.

And at the beginning of the Summer, Alice (now, Lily) ‘moved’ one last time. This was the biggest move of all for her, involving trains, planes and pushchairs.


She has gone home to the U.S.A. with her forever family. Lily got her happy ending she so deserved and we wish her all of the happiness in the world with her mama and baba. 32083875_10212088619519251_273393411627679744_n


And we think you will agree that it looks like Lily is settling in pretty quickly with her forever family, just look at that smile!
