Born in prison.

Yesterday, we got a phone call from prisons, we have been going there every week in the past, to visit the mothers in jail, who has little children. We give them a feeding supplement and soap and we help with other special needs. We stopped for a little while, because of confusion between the guards and us, but this week we wanted to resume our visits again, after we have had a good talk with the social worker from the prison. She called us yesterday, there was a four months old baby who was malnourished and if we could please take the baby for a while. The baby is four months old and his weight is 3.2 kg. The mother has no breast feeding. I was again touched by the story, I heard. Yes, the mother killed her husband in a fight, but this baby is her eight' baby, her other 7 children are at home with "neighbours". This baby is born in the prisons, what a tragedy. We took the baby in after talking with the mother and the social worker, his name is... Joseph!! So this is Joseph 2. He was not happy, as you can see on the picture, but Esther knew what to do!!
