    I heard Philippe Denis speak at the 10th anniversary conference of children in Distress (CINDI), a Pietermaritzburg, South Africa networking organization. He is a priest who has adopted several orphans and had a tremendous impact on work in KwaZuluNatal. He emphasized the resilience that comes when children maintain some contact with their mother.
