Full Name Sarah
Birthday 7/10/13
Gender Female
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.
