Children of CHIPROM: Ibukun

Say hello to Ibukun (Ee-boo-koon). His name means blessing in Yoruba, and he is the greatest little almost-2-year-old on the planet.

He doesn't go to school during the days, so I get to hang out with him and Favor until everyone else returns. He runs around, laughing and giggling, occasionally crying, and sometimes sleeping. He has chicken pox right now, so pray that he won't scratch too much and he will be healed up soon!

He is also very bow-legged. A lot of people grow out of this as they get older, but I have seen a few people walking around Ibadan with bow-legs that look very uncomfortable and noticeable. Pray that Ibukun's legs will straighten naturally, and that he will be able to run around without being hindered by his legs.

  1. Aw, what a sweet little guy! Still thinking and praying about you lots, Sierra! It surely looks like you are enjoying your time there.

    Heads up...I couldn't watch the video of him laughing (which I bet is a-d-o-r-a-b-l-e) because YouTube says the video is "private."

  2. Hey Sierra, the video says its private. i can'r see the video. WAAAaaaahhh!
    UDD a.k.a. Otorongongo

  3. Sorry! I'm taking care of the video situation.
