Today I got word that a tiny baby we were wanting to help passed away before she could get the medical help she needed. She was just 21 days old. I was hoping we could help her through our Unity Fund for rural families. Her parents were extremely poor, from a western province, and they are devastated that they lost their precious daughter.
Thinking about this family today reminded me of one of my favorite videos about another child who was born very ill. Some of you might have seen it before, but it is always worth watching one more time. How I wish every orphaned baby we have lost had a video just like this one.
Every child born deserves to be this treasured.
