    (6)

    Foreign correspondent Neely Tucker and his wife, Vita, arrived in Zimbabwe in 1997. After witnessing firsthand the devastating consequences of AIDS on the population, especially the children, the couple started volunteering at an orphanage that was desperately underfunded and short-staffed. One afternoon, a critically ill infant was brought to the orphanage from a village outside the city. She'd been left to die in a field on the day she was born.

    "Excellent, worthy of time and attention"
    Overall

    This book was definitely worth the time. The author goes into the issues of AIDS in Rwanda and Zimbabwe and the way Americans are seen in parts of Africa. There are many aspects of African life that are explored in this book that we, as Americans are not aware of and should be. The story of this man and his wife who try to adopt a Zimbabwean baby is compelling and inparts, sad. Neely Tucker and his wife are to be commended for doing what they did in this story and thier baby, Cheapo, is a very luck little girl.
