MEET OUR CHILDREN

Carla and Cecilia’s Story

Carla and Cecilia were always very close since they were toddlers. Then, two years ago, Carla lost her little sister, Cecilia, to a sudden illness. Cecilia was only thirteen months younger than Carla.

Eveline’s Story

Late one night in June of 2017, Eveline was awakened by terrible pain. What began as a dull ache earlier in the evening had become sharp, excruciating pains that seemed to shoot across her lower back.

Carrie and Mars

Carrie’s childhood was less than idyllic; her mother was manipulative and emotionally abusive, and by 16, Carrie began dating someone whose attitude and behaviors mirrored those of her mother.
