Mary writes of this quilt, "We think of them as distant and dirty, if we think of them at all. In fact, they are like our own children when we call them in from play. What's different is that we protect our children from all things harmful; she and her fellow orphans are safe from nothing that will prey on them: hatred, hunger, disease, rape, greed. An orphan does not lack simply parents: she lacks everything needed to live."
