Children in Danger

     In the process of adopting our daughter, we became aware of a practice which is common in Africa due to superstitious beliefs about people with disabilities.  Children with disabilities are often seen as a curse on their families, and are often poisoned or killed in other ways because of these beliefs.  Our daughter was lucky enough to survive, but many other innocent children are in danger. One of the main motivations behind founding Nurturing Nations was to save these children, and provide a safe place where they could live and learn to their fullest potential. Nurturing Nations is working to dispel these prejudices and superstitions in the communities we come in contact with, because all lives have equal value.
