Dying without a name

This photo was taken on our last mission in July August 2007. The child has no name. He was abandoned at the foot steps of a Buddhist Temple/orphanage on January 1, 2007. The Buddhist nun stated the parents could no longer take care of him. He had some type of brain cancer. He is paralyzed from the neck down. You can see the obvious signs that death is near for this unknown child. His limbs are so thin. The nun also stated that the child is deaf and mute. She does what she can to alleviate the suffering for this child. She trys to comfort him the best she can with what she has.

The 2nd photo you see is Grandma Jeanne comforting the child. Some of the children we return for will not be there when our team returns again. This no name child will be one of them. I know that he will not be there. At least he did not die alone and others were around him.
Come back to my blog if you think you are having a bad day and click on my video of this child.
