Joshua Mark Fortson

Beautiful Joshua was a premature birth and at 2 weeks his mother left the hospital one day and just never returned for him. He weighed about 4 pounds when he came to Neema but was gaining weight and he slept and ate and slept and ate. For reasons we do not understand, Joshua became very ill and passed away (December 1, 2012) before we could get him to a doctor. We expect to see him in heaven some day!

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.
