Ashley Rescued from neglect Rescued from deep neglect at 9 months old, Baby Ashley came to Salem Orphanage very sick and malnourished weighing just 10 pounds. Her short life had been full of incredible sadness and survival, not exactly what a little baby should be dealing with. She was seen by a doctor and got several antibiotics for the 3 different infections that filled her weak body. Within a few days she started responding to the medication, nutritious food, and sweet love from Mama Phoebe. She is now healthy, part of a family that absolutely adores her, and has a future that has been re-written and is filled with hope.
