April 2017 update:
Manita is 11 years old and now has more than 6 months in her new Haitian foster home, following living in our care for over 6 years. Manita has a birthmom that loves her. However, that mother is not equipped (for a variety of reasons) to parent Manita. Still Manita and her mom love each other, so when we chose a Haitian foster family for Manita, we chose a family in the same community as her birthmom, so that she can stay close.
Things are going very well for Manita in her new home and at her new school. Manita is speaking more English now that she is going to such a good school, and she is thriving. She's growing up quickly, and we are happy to see the great care she is receiving in her foster home. Your sponsorship pays for the foster care stipend we pay to her foster family, as well as food and schooling.
