New Life for Babies (or, not…)

And today’s news? Another polite rejection.

When I’m working in Kenya I pass by New Life Home for Babies every day on my way to the office. New Life tries to find homes for many of the children who come into its care, but the most medically needy ones are never placed with families. Many of the children are HIV-infected, or thought to be. I suspect that these children are the most difficult to place with adoptive families, and we feel capable of managing a chronic illness.  Without access to anti-retrovirals, HIV-infected children will die before age 5. I wrote a nice letter to New Life more than three months ago, and never heard back. Initially, I thought no news was bad news, but this week I decided to try again. I was wrong. My letter and their reply is pasted here.
