Dorcus is a very shy 8 year old girl. She lives with her grandmother and 5 siblings. Dorcus' mother is sometimes around but her primary care giver is is aging grandmother. Her father died 2 years ago in 2010. Dorcus often complains of stomach pains. We hope to get her to a doctor to have this looked into. The family rents a tiny 2 roomed house where all 8 family members live.
Thanks to her sponsors, we were able to take her on a shopping trip to the mall and out for ice cream and some play time. It took a little while for her to warm up and become comfortable, then we got to see her beautiful smile and her personality. She had a wonderful time shopping. She even got to buy a special dolly with extra money provided by her sponsors! It was a great day!
