Sweet as pie. Smart like Einstein. More beautiful than anyone, both on the inside and outside!
Edith is a quite girl with big dreams. She is someone you are immediately drawn to. She is wise beyond her years and stronger than most people I know.
Before moving to the orphanage Edith lived in the slums with her 6 siblings. They all lived at her uncles house because her father past away and her mother left them after he had passed. Her uncle was very abusive to her and her siblings and felt as though they were burdens of him and his family. Edith hardly went to school because she could not pay for her school fees. She dreamed of becoming someone that could help other children that were in the same situation she was in but that dream seemed so far away. Now that she has moved into the orphanage she has become a girl who is reaching for her dreams and working hard in school to make sure that they come true. She is among the top students in her class and is thriving and happy! She knows that God has blessed her with a second chance and is so humbled to see God work through her.
