Darlenys is 11 years old. Her father has recently died, and her mother is living in the streets with addiction and in darkness. No other family member was found fit to care for her. She came to us afraid, sad, underweight and barefoot. The transformation has been a miracle! What a blessing to see her whole face light up and see the hope that God has restored in her life.
She is a very loving and calm girl. She loves dolls and really enjoys socializing. She is always willing to help others. Her greatest wish is to be able to go to college and become an excellent pediatrician.
