Full Name Sarah
Location Jérémie, Haiti
Sarah was taken to the hospital in February 2014 by her 16-year-old sister who had been caring for Sarah after her mother died while giving birth. Sarah’s sister had no means to continue caring for her, and was considering prostitution as a means to support her. She chose to abandon Sarah at the hospital. At the age of eight months, Sarah weighed only 7 pounds. A few weeks after being welcomed into the Hopestart Abandoned Babies Home, Sarah’s health improved greatly. Today, Sarah is a very happy and healthy toddler who loves to play with her toys and have books read to her. Sarah also enjoys bath time as well as learning new words.
