Baby Glory was 4 months old when Social Welfare brought her to Neema Village. She was malnourished and very small for her age. Her mother is mentally ill and after having the baby would hide the baby so Social Welfare could not find her. Social Welfare had been trying to find the mother in order to take the baby. The house where she was living was one of the worst we have seen. Glory cried for a couple of days after coming to Neema but now she is fine and is a favorite baby for many who come to visit. She will need sponsors while she lives at Neema Village.
Orphans are easier to ignore before you know their names. They are easier to ignore before you see their faces. It is easier to pretend they’re not real before you hold them in your arms. But once you do, everything changes.
