My Story: My name is Lovena and I am so happy to be here at New Life Children’s Home. I came here in 2008 when I was just 3 years old. I came from the Pestel area where my family struggled to find food, clean water, and to provide the medical care that I needed. When I got here to New Life I was unable to talk, walk or even stand. My legs were so floppy! With several years of good food, loving care and the right medicine, I now can walk! In fact, one of my favorite things to do is to sweep the yard. It makes me feel good that I can help and be in such a happy and safe place. It would be so great to one day be a nurse and help others.
