This sweet girl’s name is Lizeth and throughout the years of my visits to the orphanage, I have gotten to know the depths of her heart. When she first arrived at the orphanage, she was angry, reserved, sad, and her soul had been overall deeply damaged.
Today, Lizeth is not the same girl. She is a girl who abounds in hope, is full of life, and dreams of a bright future. Though she still has scars from her past, they have faded immensely and some have even healed.
City of Refuge is a place that gives life to children who feel as if their life’s have been robbed from them. Tear-filled eyes turn into eyes that sparkle. Anger that seems to be dominating turns into joy that radiates. Broken hearts become mended and crushed spirts are resurrected.
