••leave it up to me••
Meet Anna, one of the newest girls to my section. What a diva, no? She & her three siblings arrived to the home with nothing but the clothes on their backs. Their heads had to be shaved because they had such bad lice. Before coming here, they would wander the streets, begging for money & food, as their parents worked in the market. She is 11 years old and cannot read or write. I work with her every day on writing, & am helping to teach her how to swim. Despite these challenges, Anna is full of life. She loves loves loves to dance (she's got moves to rival Shakira) & is always smiling and hugging me. She has a long way to go, but she has already made huge strides in her short time here. No doubt in my mind, this girl is a Mowgli.
