Kellen, 10 years old
Kellen came from a family of twelve. Her father had many wives, but her mother died three years ago.
The other wives chased her away to go live on the streets where she ran from house to house trying to make a living as a house girl at 7 years of age.
One of the Ladies of Hope brought her to the church and now that she is here at the Home for Hope, she has been able to go back to school. She is getting better, but still struggles with a lack of trust because she feels that every woman is out to kill her. And she misses her mother terribly.
Kellen wants to study to become a minister.
