Baby O was given up for adoption by his mother, who subsequently tested positive for HIV. Before being brought to Atlantic Hope in May 2011, Baby O was briefly placed in another safety house, but the safety parents had become sick and needed respite. Although he had tested negative for HIV, the little boy was born with no immunity, and his consequent medical needs remained a constant challenge for Atlantic Hope. Carers tended to the child twenty-four hours a day, even accompanying him in hospital. Baby O spent three special months with Atlantic Hope before being adopted into a loving home. Atlantic Hope remains in close contact with Baby O in his new life, where he is thriving.
