My Story

She has three sisters (Arleth, Arcelia, and Sofia) who also attend the daycare. Her mom works at a local hotel to provide for her family. She likes to play hide and seek, and Elsa from Frozen is her favorite character. Esmeralda is a quiet, timid little girl. Despite the hardship of escaping her abusive father with her mother and three sisters, she understands what happened and why they had to leave. Her mother finally found the courage to leave their dangerous situation, and Esmeralda and her siblings were forced to move from southern Mexico to La Mision to escape their abusive father. They came to the only family they have, Maricela, our cook in La Mision. It was Maricela who came to us with a very similar story, and she naturally turned to us to offer the same love and help for her sister. Maricela pleaded with us to take Esmeralda and her sisters, and we, of course, said yes. Esmeralda is now safe at Open Arms while her mom is at her new job. She is going to the local school and learning all about the love of God at the daycare. Please pray for Esmeralda, her mom, and her three sisters as they heal from abuse, come to know Jesus, and look toward a brighter future.
