A Dolly in Buwenge

This young dolly fell asleep in her momma’s arms. Just laying all floppy like, I thought getting a quick snap with the sleepy dolly facing out would be adorable. Momma, on the other hand, felt obligated to wake and fully clothe her baby in readiness for her photo. Rats!

Fully awake and crabby now, this tiny one was nothing more than hungry when she saw the dolly. Into her mouth went the hair and the arms and any other piece possible. I realize this girl is a bit smaller than the usual dolly recipient, but the picture would have been so cute as originally envisioned.

None the less, our short interaction led to a semi-formal introduction. Get this. Her mother says, “Her name is Kisakye.” Gulp! What? God is way too cool. I realize names like Patience, Joy, Grace, Peace, and the like are more common here but still…
