This is the story of Chili. Chili came to the Haiti Children orphanage over a year ago. She had been abused for many years. She is handicapped and endured abuse for it. I was extremely intimidated upon meeting her because I relate to her.

When I was a little girl of the same age, 8, I was also abused, and I did not trust anyone. This is a lesson that I had to learn. It’s hard to love when you’ve been hurt, but it’s harder not to. Love will heal the way.

I would love to hear from you. – Susie
