New Baby

There are over  1.3 million orphans in Zambia. Namwianga Mission supports orphans in caring for newborn and medically vulnerable children with emphasis on returning children to their home at the appropriate time. Steven is our newest. He arrived yesterday. He is the second baby received at The Havens since we've been here. Steven is the seventh baby to a mother who is dying of cancer.  All we know is mother is HIV negative,  inoperable cancer, and an inability for the family to care for this newborn. What a lucky baby to have the opportunities to thrive at The Havens! My hope is that we leave The Mission Friday without experiencing a death. I'd much rather deal with a new life!
