Imagine being pregnant with your sixth child and learning that your husband has a very serious illness. He is admitted to the hospital. What will you do if he passes away? He is the sole bread-earner for the family and you do not have proper documentation to stay in the country, even though all your children do and you’ve lived here for more than two decades.
Then he passes away.
This is exactly what happened to one of the mothers enrolled in our program last year. Her husband passed away after being admitted to a local hospital. The other families in our program and our staff surrounded her with love and care as she gave birth to her sixth child, who was diagnosed with Down’s Syndrome.
Watch for the what happens next in tomorrow’s blog.
