Distance - Lake Naivasha to Thika - Kenya

I can't seem to get the information on this. I can get the miles from Nairobi to the lake by googling 'distance lake naivasha to nairobi' but between Thika and the lake nothing wants to come up. Is there a site somewhere that might have this info, or a better search term?

I seem to mostly get reports from bicyclers who went from here to there to there and didn't give anything but over all miles.

Or it could be that i'm just tired and fuzzy and overlooking the obvious.

Thank you!

Paraplegia and the foster system

I have a few questions about the Australian foster care system, though I wouldn't turn down info on protocols from other countries.  I've tried just about every google search I can think of.

If a child suffers a spinal injury in an accident that kills his only adult relative, how does the system deal with him?  Insurance will deal with the medical costs and things, but where would he be housed for his physical therapy?   What would happen to his sister?  Does his being a paraplegic reduce his chances of being housed with his sister (or does it improve them)? Does it reduce his chances of a permanent adoptive home? 

The two characters are in their teens and live in Australia.

Can anyone help? I'm starting to think it's the kind of information governments keep quiet about.
