La Voix de l’Enfant – The Voice of the Child Nabeul
The nursery for abandoned new-born babies takes care of 15-20 children. 10 nurses give them love and affection helping them grow. At the same time, the Center looks for adoptive parents who will give them the home they need so much. The adoptive parents stay several days with the baby so that he can “adopt” his new parents too, and leave the Center without the impression of a second rupture. Thus, 80 % of the abandoned babies find new parents in this way.
Here is the story of one of the babies. This baby was born at the beginning of the 8th month of gestation. His biological mother stayed in touch with him for 4 months, she came to visit her child from time to time, but finally she gave him for adoption. He left the nursery at 9 months and his new family stayed with him at the Center during 5 days.
In 10 years:
– 508 children have been hosted
– 340 children have been adopted
– 88 children returned to their biological mother
