Sildana came to us along with several other children in April of 2009 from an orphanage in the town of Bombardopolis. It had been very poorly run and there were reports of abuse and neglect so the government shut it down and contacted us about taking some of the kids which we did. There were no records at this orphanage so we don’t have Sildana’s birthdate. Sildana gave us some information when she came that she remembered about her family, including her parents’ names and that she had 11 siblings but she had not had any contact with them for a long time and their whereabouts and status are unknown to us. Like most of the kids from this orphanage Sildana was quite thin and malnourished when she came but had blossomed into a pretty, healthy young lady.
