archana…

More news from india (see previous Oct, Nov posts)…recently got an email from C at the Daddy’s Home orphanage which just celebrated its 10 year anniversary.  She sent these two pictures, both of the same child Archana:

She was found on Sept 7th in a rubbish bin (a lot of babies come to the orphanage with this beginning see here), she was very burned after being under the sun all day. She weighed 3 lbs (1,4 kg) and was HIV positive.

This is Archana at christmas time, still HIV positive but obviously thriving and with a chance of becoming negative (i never knew this before, but when i was  in India doctors told me that newborns infected with HIV contracted from the mother had a good chance of working the virus out of their system).
