She said, “YES.”
We took in a new little love at HOPE House yesterday. Her name is Nayika. You can tell by the look in her eyes that she doesn’t feel good. And likely never has. Since she was two months old her mother has called us needing money to take her to the hospital, money for food, and for a place to live. She is now seventeen months old and her situation wasn’t getting any better. Earlier this week her mother called to say she couldn’t keep caring Nayika any longer, and she was going to place her in an orphanage.
We asked her to come to Port-au-Prince so we could help her find a better solution. Yesterday evening she arrived at HOPE House and we asked her, “If you had a job and a place to live, do you want to raise this baby? Do you WANT to keep her?” With tears swelling in her eyes and a smile across her face, she held Nayika, a bit tighter and said, “YES.”
