Many of our children have had a bad start in life, but imagine your troubles starting the day you are born! SL is just one of many new-born babies that are abandoned in hospitals around the Philippines every year; the mother gives birth and then later just walks out of the hospital alone.
In these particular situations our social worker becomes a detective in an attempt to trace the mother or any other relatives, following up information given to the hospital upon admission and also using the media to bring attention to the case. Luckily a relative heard one of our announcements on the radio and came to Angel House to let us know that they are interested in taking custody of this beautiful little girl.
This looks like it may be a happy ending for baby SL and she will be able to stay with relatives, but we also have another abandoned new-born girl and no relatives have contacted us about her.
Your donations through GlobalGiving enable Angel House to rescue these abandoned babies and give them the loving care that they deserve; we can also use our resources to look for the parents and process the child for adoption if no relatives can be found.
