Baby Room

Silas has heard to today of a set of twins whose mother  died just three hours after giving birth, two weeks ago. The father is no where to be seen.Family members are trying to take care of the babies but the conditions they are in are just too dire for me to explain to you. The poverty is unbearable! I keep saying to Dave when we see such situations 'Dave, this is 2010!' After 10 years we are still shocked and saddened by what we see on a daily basis. Silas will ask the family if we can help. People have pride, and we treat this with a great deal of respect, the family ties are strong but sometimes life as it is, is impossible to cope with.
