Imagine growing up thinking you were a mistake, a curse, or the product of some sin. That would definitely color how you see the world and the way you see yourself. In places like Kenya, children with deformities are often ridiculed, outcast, or hidden….
….but not at CURE! Kids here are loved, honored, and celebrated!
CURE believes that every child is a divine gift from God. CURE feels it’s their job to share the gospel with these kids so that if they never come back to a CURE hospital again, at least the gospel goes home with them and will impact everyone who hears each child’s story.
Patience is one of those amazing CUREkids. To look at her infectious smile, you would think she doesn’t have a problem in the world. Although she has already had three surgeries on her club feet, her mom said she is a blessing to everyone she meets. I can tell you for a fact, that statement is true.
Even before Patience was born, the odds were against her. Her mom was told to abort her because there was a curse on her family. Then when she was born with a deformity, her dad left, and her mom was forced to raise Patience by herself. Maybe that’s why she is named Patience, because that is what it took to raise her alone. Patience’s mom is strong, but even she says she is humbled by the incredible strength of her daughter.
