Standing with the Marginalized…
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look
after orphans and widows in their distress… James 1:27
Cristina is 32 years old and the mother of a newborn child. Her parents died when she was young, so she was raised in various government child placement centers in Romania. Cristina has mental and emotional deficiencies, and we were very surprised to find when she came to our home that she`s never been to school. In spite of this, we have been encouraged to see how much she loves her little boy and is growing in her role as a mother. She is learning life skills at Hagar Home, such as how to read and write.
Since working with Cristina we have been reminded that success is not always what we want or what we expect it to be. For her, success means learning to read, write and to raise her child no matter the cost. Together, we have given Cristina this chance!
