Baby SS was born six weeks premature. Her parents, recognising that they were unable to provide for her, decided to arrange an open adoption. Atlantic Hope was identified as a suitable place of safety for the child in February 2011, but Baby SS was forced to remain in the care of the Red Cross Hospital while undergoing critical corrective surgery. During her time here, Atlantic Hope paid for all medical requirements not provided by the various medical specialists that donated their time and expertise. Baby SS stayed with Atlantic Hope for a further eight weeks, before embarking on a new life with her delighted adoptive parents. Atlantic Hope remains in contact with Baby SS’s new family, and share the joy that she has brought to them.
