Before moving into the orphanage Jessica lived in the slums with her eight siblings. Her life was spent fighting for food and the basic needs of survival for herself and all her siblings. Her father was an alcoholic and her mother abandoned her family months prior to her moving into the orphanage. Her father had a night job as a guard but often spent his money on booze and instead of  food or clothing for his children. She played the role of mother many times and had to grow up way too fast as a nine year old girl. She tell me that she is still trying to forgive her mother and father for not being the kind of Godly parents her and her siblings deserve. She hopes one day that they will both find God and work together to better their lives. She is now a happy and bright girl with the world at her fingertips. She says she prays every night for God to show her what He wants her to do in life now that she is so blessed by living at the orphanage. She is so wise beyond her years and so determined to make her life and Kenya so much better. Thank you for giving this special girl a chance to grow and have dreams. She deserves to be loved and to love
