“Civilisation only begins when we feel that a neglected child is a personal reproach to each of us.”
-– HRH Princess Alice, Countess of Athlone.
October marked the 84th anniversary since HRH Princess Alice, Countess of Athlone officially opened Princess Alice Adoption Home in 1930.
We are very proud to continue with the service for which the Home was originally opened, and play a small but very vital role in the lives of our babies and families.
In the last post, we wrote that, in 2014 alone, we have cared for 50 babies (18 have been adopted, 1 baby placed in foster care and another 2 were re-united with their birth moms). We have also provided a place of safety for another 10 birth moms.
Thank you for all the support that makes it possible for us to continue on this journey – we look forward to celebrating 85 years in 2015.
