The wife of one of my co-workers at the office recently had twins. Here the mother-to-be often travels back to her mother's house to have her baby. This mother did, traveling back to Burkina Faso to have her babies. Because the babies were born in Burkina, the father traveled there as well for the traditional naming ceremony, usually held on the 8th day after birth.
Usually if somebody at the office has a baby or another important event happens, everybody at the office will go together to the event. But since the babies' naming ceremony was in another country, we couldn't really all go together.
So when the mother got back with the twins, we all went over to their house to greet. We collected a gift of money to present to the parents. Of course, we all wanted a turn to hold one of the babies! We prayed for the family and presented our gift to them. Here are some pictures from our visit.
