In Romania, many children who are ‘orphans’ are not orphans in the literal sense. This was the case with Ana. At age 12, her family was one of abuse and she was kicked out. She lived with her grandmother for a year, and when her grandmother died, Ana was sent to a state facility to enter the orphan system. In this facility, Remember the Children staff met Ana and offered her a home with House of Hope, our orphan care home in Romania.
