to Uganda to help with the AIDS crisis, Mary Ann met Grace, an HIV positive

her children as orphans. “Who is going to love, nurture and educate them?” In
response, Mary Ann promised to educate Grace’s children. Soon after Grace died,
Children of Grace was born to fulfill the promise to love, nurture and educate
