This is Fenet Winikoff, may her memory be a blessing. Fenet was our daughter for a several months in 2011 and 2012. She succumbed to illness six days after we finalized her adoption and died in our arms. We never got her out of Africa. Fenet was a beautiful little girl and a gentle spirit. Even though she was very sick, I never once heard her cry.
This blog is dedicated to her memory and to all the children of Africa who, for whatever reason, do not have biological parents to care for them. Someday, I will write about Fenet’s story and her life. But that day is not today.
Fenet, you had a family and you were loved.
