Faith died on December 1st World AIDS Day, aged 15th months.
"Faith died yesterday, in the ICU. Now his mom would like someone to
care for his sister. She doesn’t see any way she can do it all herself,
and find a job to support the two of them. I am so worn out this week,
I’m sad about Faith, at the same time feel bad that I no longer feel
the full impact of a child’s death. And I wonder how I can even be
sorry for myself being tired and failing to save Faith, when the
mother’s loss is so great. Most of her “support team”, counselors from
Spring of Life, left for the all-Africa AIDS conference in Abuja the
morning after Faith died, so she’s lacking even that support right now."
When I wrote about Faith last week I never thought about him dying and now he is gone and my heart is so heavy. He never stood a chance
