Baby Alicia Is Dying
Reading Level: Young Adult
Desi thinks it's totally unfair that innocent
baby Alicia was born HIV positive. Now the eight-month-old Alicia
lives at Childcare because she was given away by her sick teenage
mother. Desi can relate to feeling unloved. Her parents give her all
the material things she needs, but there seems to be a wall between her
mother and herself. Working at Childcare has opened Desi's heart
and allowed her to feel the love that she's been longing for. But
Alicia is not her child and there is no cure for her condition.
Can Desi cope with the harsh realities and still believe in love?
