Sarah Obama Said Barack Obama Jr. Was An Orphan in Kenya

Sarah Obama said that Barack Obama passed through her hands as an orphan. How could that possibly happen?

Below you will find a fairly recent but undated article about Sarah Obama's humanitarian work with orphans and other vulnerable children over the course of her life.

In the Catholic Relief Services article, Mama Sarah, as she's affectionately called, opened her simple home to dozens of children "over the last 40 years."  In addition, she is said to have received help for hundreds of other children.  She clearly has dedicated her life to helping vulnerable children.

So strong has been public interest in Kogelo village since Barack Obama's election, that the Mama Sarah Obama Children Foundation was established to collect donations for these children. In contrast to the CRS article, Sarah's Foundation website says unequivocally that Mama Sarah has been tending children since 1945, which means she has been taking care of children for over 65 years.
"Since then to date her household has never missed an orphan or vulnerable child in pursuit of education." 
That time frame is relevant to the issue of Barack Obama's early childhood because it means she was caring for children in 1961, the year of Obama's birth.

Why is this relevant?  Because Sarah made this stunningly explicit remark on May 4, 2010 when she was awarded an honorary doctorate from the Tom Mboya Labour College in Kisumu:
"This is a show of blessing from God, since I have always dedicated my time to tend to the orphans. Even the US president passed through my hands," added the grandmother."

If indeed Barack Obama Jr. was born in her presence, and if he was born as a conjoined twin as has been suggested due to severe scars on his head, he might have been rejected by his natural mother. Who better than Sarah Obama to care for such a vulnerable child? Additional photos of Obama's scars available at the Daily Mail.

Sarah Obama's comment raises more questions and, not surprisingly, encourages speculation.

4/13/11 UPDATE:  President Obama was scheduled to begin his budget speech at 1:35 ET on Tuesday, April 13. For unknown reasons, his speech began late.  I'm sure it's only a coincidence, of course, but I was intrigued to discover that someone from Washington, D.C. followed a link to this article at  12:59 CT.  See the screen capture below.
