Intelligent, Caring, Shining Smile.
Barbara is wise beyond her age. She excels in school and always works to her full potential. She is bright and determined. She always hopes, always dreams, and always smiles. She is Mighty.
Before starting her new life at the orphanage she lived a hard life in the slums with her younger sister. She was without parents , her father was murdered and her mother so traumatized that she could not go on. The two girls lived with their elderly grandmother who was too week to care for them, leaving Barbara to be both the sister and mother to Belinda. Often times she was unable to attend class because she had to search for water and food. She would pray every night for God to take her and her sister to a place where they can learn and be loved by people. Now that she lives at the orphanage Barbara is loved beyond measure, she can play with her friends, and be a happy twelve year old girl. She is safe, she is loved, she is happy.
