Eye: You featured Gladys Kalibbala in your film, Misconception. What triggered the idea to write a book about her?
Heidi: In Uganda there are many reasons for children being lost, like illness, poverty or simple separation from family. I was impressed by the fact that Gladys was rescuing so many children on her own. She doesn’t have money or the backing of an NGO. But over the years she has taken on hundreds of these cases.
