~ Beauty ~
This beautiful girl in the orange shirt is named, Beauty. Yes, most of the girls at this age range have very short hair. It is a school requirement. Beauty was born April 14, 2004 which makes her 8 years old. Beauty was abandoned when she was 2 years old. Her mother had passed away and no one in her family would agree to care for her so they abandoned her near a hospital. Beauty stayed at that hospital for 3 months until she was taken by the social welfare department. The department worker contacted Fatima, our fearless orphanage director and so became a part of the orphanage immediately. Beauty has been in the orphanage for a little more than 5 years. When asked what she wants to be when she grows up, she says she'd like to be a nurse. I am not sure what her birth name was as it is very common for the children to receive a new name when they are rescued. It is symbolic in making a new and better life. Isn't she a beauty?
I took this photograph in December 2011. This expression that you see on her face is the one I most regularly see. I think she is still trying to figure me out. She is shy toward me but as she gets a little older I believe that will change! Beauty will be a part of the sponsorship program we are launching in the 4th quarter of this year. Stay tuned. If you have any messages or questions for Beauty, please post them here and I will exchange them with our sweet Fatima and try to get you a response soon.
Beauty is almost smiling in the photo above.
