Love always finds a way.
How a mother found the strength to raise eight boys on her own and a son found the strength to smile.
At one month old, Mirian weighed just four pounds. Five months later, with the support of our local partners, she had transformed into a happy, chubby baby.
Neilsen helped a mission organization that flew doctors into Madagascar to provide cleft care, but he knew local doctors were as capable as those flying in.
Aunt Rebecca did not trust that her sister would provide Samson with the special care he needed. So, she brought him back to the place he was born, the tiny-two room house he now shared with 13 relatives, all female.

Auner was lucky to survive long enough to enter our partner's care. Now, he's thriving and smiling.
