In this stunning photo, dad Edward cradles his daughter Christine just hours after she was born.

“I feel amazingly blessed," he explains. "When we joined the Child Survival project it helped us so much by relieving some of the burdens in our family and helping our baby. Compassion has taken care of all the bills at the hospital. I was only left with the responsibility of taking care of home. I am so grateful to God for granting us the blessings of receiving all these blessings. The staff members have helped so much. I’m so grateful to God!"
