    Julie’s Story

    Juliet’s mother was 15 years old when she became pregnant with her first child (Juliet’s sister, Christine) due to rape. Their mother has no living parents and her relatives have always been hesitant to help her. She tried to form a relationship with another man she thought would care for her and her daughter Christine. However after she became pregnant with his daughter Juliet, he disappeared and no one knows where he is or even who he is. After the birth of Juliet, their mother dropped the girls with her uncle who cared for them for a few years. Unfortunately, the uncle was unemployed and an alcoholic who had no desire or intention of caring for the girls long term. He left them with his mother, but she only saw the girls as a burden. It has been reported that she abused them, denied them food and insulted them constantly. She did these things, she says because they are the children of a “prostitute”. Finally in 2017, Juliet and Christine were welcomed home to the safety and stability of The Peace for Paul family. Thanks to her sponsor, Juliet will have a safe and loving place to call home and she will have the opportunity to attend school and to chase her dreams.
