It was a whole family event topped off with some chicken dumplings, fruit salad, and of course birthday cake. Theophile's "brother" Narcisse was able to come to the festivities as well.
Theophile told us when he first moved in with us that it is a Rwandan tradition to dump water on whomsoever birthday you are celebrating. We made a mental note and filed it away for such an occasion. We made sure his other host family was completely aware of the tradition and they came through brilliantly!
We are blessed to have a continued relationship with Theophile and Narcisse and we love sharing moments like these with them!
Even Landon Came!
Theophile wanted a picture receiving his gift as if he was receiving a diploma in High School!
Who doesn't like new clothes
Happy Birthday THEO!
