An Advent Calendar of Stories

Three Wise Women
Poyo (palm wine)
Quietly and with a sisterly understanding they prepared for their journey.
It would take many days on foot to reach the mother and baby but they knew this was important.
They carried gifts to present to the baby in recognition of this birth.
Each with a special significance.
A crystal symbolising the healing process that had started.
A white dove to mark the peace and hope that now would be felt.
And an embroidered cloth with the Adinkra symbol, “Aya” for endurance.
All for this special girl. The first baby born in their old village since Ebola had been eradicated.
