Hello everyone, I'm known as Isabel! 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: July 30, 2012

Since: October 30, 2020

"Isabel is 8 years old but doesn’t look like an 8 year old girl. She has suffered a lot from
Aids and other health issues like malnutrition and problems with her heart. After her mother’s death, Isabel and her younger brother Jaime stayed with their father who is an alcoholic. He didn’t know how to care for Isabel. On October 2020, the hospital asked if we could help Isabel, so we took her in and now she is gaining weight and we see a lot more joy in her. Isabel longs to be with her father and asks all the time when he will come to be with her again. So we pray for healing in both of them and that they will be united again and able to live together.
