Hello everyone, I'm known as Mãe! I'm so glad you are interested in knowing more about me.


Here is a younger picture of me so you can see how much I've grown

Birthdate: September 05, 2015

Since: November 10, 2018

"Telma also known as"Mãe" and her younger sister Ester are doing very well. Their health has improved a lot because they are receiving the right medication. "Mãe" is hardly ever sick. The two sisters still have their mother, however, she cannot take care of them due to mental problems and extreme poverty. "Mãe"is a happy child and plays well with the other girls her age and goes to our preschool program.

Sibling Love:


Please pray for Mãe’s emotions. Sometimes, she misses her mom, so pray for her mother to grow in wisdom and responsibility so that Mãe may one day be able to live with her again.


We praise the Lord that Mãe is getting sweeter and happier every day. She is very sensitive.
