When the door was widely open, I found a small tiny body lying on the floor. She was P, a 15 years old girl yet her body size was like that of three year old infant. Due to CP, she didn’t grow. On my eye contact with her, she immediately gave me a bright smile. Seeing her bright smile, I had my eyes soon wet. Her teeth were almost pulled out. Since no money to buy diapers, her lower body was wrapped with cloth.
When their parents separated and they were totally abandoned. Their oldest brother (19 or 20 years old boy) was the only one who brings daily income. The second (16 or 17 years old) one who had a clubfoot naturally was left at home and took mother’s role. The third, P is yet still happy and always smiles at home though she can't do anything but lying down the whole day like that. Thankfully one of the NGO gave her a wheelchair and occasionally she could sit on it. It has been their life since they were deserted.
Feeling powerless and discouraged I headed home in the peach darkness. Immediately one song came to my mind, "I have no silver and gold. What I have I will give to you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk!” What I have in me I really want them to have. I do hope that their eyes may get widely open, so that they can see and meet Jesus Christ as their greatest blessing.
