Another sad story.

This is Paulyn Grace, she is 8 days old. Three days ago got a call from the hospital, if we could help with a baby. Petra, Simon and I went to the maternity ward. there was a mother of 18 years who gave birth to a baby girl. She was all alone, no relatives and she has a mental problem. She couldn't take care of her baby. I felt for the mother, but when I heard her story, I felt really so bad for her. When she was younger, the rebels were in her area and village. They killed her parents and also her brothers and sisters, they left her. But she could never get over the shock, she developed a mental problem. Someone took her with her to Soroti town, but she was abused and got pregnant. then she was thrown out. The nurses had pity on her and she has been living in the maternity ward for the last two months.  They asked us to take the baby for now and to help tracing for her relatives in the village. What a sad story. The little Paulyn Grace is doing well, drinking good and her mother is brought to see her yesterday. I hope we can give this story a bit happy end!
