We met Mama Noella at church one morning. She was carrying a 7 year old handicap child on her back and was 8 months pregnant. Her husband had left her. She was exhausted and destitute and had no food in the house. We tried to find a home for the handicap girl but was unable to find even a day care. We hired a nanny to help her during the day and set her up in a chicken business. She has done very well, even expanding her chickens and the yards to have more chickens.
Orphans are easier to ignore before you know their names. They are easier to ignore before you see their faces. It is easier to pretend they’re not real before you hold them in your arms. But once you do, everything changes.
