My Name Is BlessingBook - 2013
Baraka is a young Kenyan boy with a physical disability, and he and his eight cousins live with their grandmother. She gives them boundless love, but there is never enough money or food, and life is hard. Baraka is too young, and needs too much, and she is too old. A difficult choice must be made and they set off on a journey to see if there is a place at the orphanage for Baraka. This beautiful picture book begins by looking at Baraka's disability as a misfortune, but ends by looking beyond the it, to his great heart and spirit and the blessings he brings.
