Can you imagine having to give up one of your children in hopes that they all might survive?
For Janeli’s mother, this sacrifice was a reality.
At only four months old, Janeli was one of our newest children at the Casa Luz Orphanage in Ayacucho, Peru this past August. After separating from her husband, her mother had to take care of the three children on her own. Unfortunately, the temporary work she acquired did not pay her enough to care for a baby. She came to Casa Luz out of desperation and asked us to house her youngest child because she didn’t have enough money to provide for her needs.
Our heart went out to Janeli’s mother and we prayed that God would bring her a job that allowed her to support all of her children. This past March our prayers were answered when Janeli’s mother took her daughter home because the Lord provided her with a job. We’re thrilled to see the family back together and we praise God for answering prayers!
