  • Geneviv - Ready for the World

    Geneviv-01Before leaving on this mission I was told that I would likely bond with at least one special child … and that turned out to be so true! My special connection was with a 14-year-old girl named Geneviv.

    Whenever I saw her she kept her head down, avoiding eye contact and even more the camera.

    Junior with the DocTen-year-old Junior has already seen a great deal of trouble in his young life.  His mother died when he was three months old, and he's being raised by his maternal grandmother and an aunt.  His older brother by two years suffers from seizures, and his oldest brother died at the age of 14.  Junior's father is in his life as much as possible, but he's away from home most of the time working on the family's rice and sugar cane farm.  To add to their problems, their home burned down just a few days before the FOT mission began.
