Her mother was raped by her own cousin and she became pregnant with Bhakti. After she was born, we found that she was a low birth weight baby. Further investigations revealed that she also had ‘Laryngomalacia” a condition in which there is a hole in the wall lining the wind pipe and the food pipe. This created problems in her breathing as well as swallowing. She was operated upon for this condition by a renowned pediatric surgeon and received excellent medical care. She has now been adopted by parents in Mumbai.
2. Kunal – [Name Change]
Kunal was a low birth weight premature baby and needed utmost care and medical aid. He has a rare condition of absence of one external ear called ‘Anotia’. Both the mother and Kunal were abandoned by the relatives ad had nowhere to go. So the baby was relinquished by the mother to Snehankur while she was given shelter in our Women’s shelter Snehadhar. Kunal has been adopted and will be going in a happy family in USA.
3. Shruti – [Name Change]
Shruti’s mother was HIV positive but received treatment at Snehalaya through our hospital throughout her pregnancy. So Shruti was born HIV negative but had tuberculosis. She was given complete treatment and has been now adopted by parents in the US.
Adoption of a child is a beginning of the new relations as we have also adopted each other as our extended family members.
