Fourteen-year-old Genet would love to become a doctor when she grows up. Her favorite activities are crafts and playing on the swing set, and her favorite class so far has been environmental science.
Genet lives with her parents and her three siblings. Both parents have been day laborers, but when her mother became bed-ridden due to illness four years ago, and her father had to direct most of his attention to caring for her, their family’s financial situation suffered greatly. Genet was referred to Hanna Orphan’s Home by the Office of Women and Children’s Affairs and is doing well there and advancing in her studies.
Because the Lord placed people in her life to care for her – her parents, Hanna Orphan’s Home, and her Oakseed sponsor, Genet has been able to thrive in a safe and loving environment.
