Tasfanesh is going to be staying in a children's home where she will have her casting completed until it is time for her procedure. She was saddened by the news, because she doesn't want to be apart from her father. Daresebo also began to tear up. We encouraged them to be strong and that it is only until she's back for surgery and her father, Daresebo may come rejoin her then! We are glad Tasfanesh's healing has begun! We pray for strength for her and her family during this time apart.
