Meet Leslie Ann

She was different, pure potty mouth if you ask me.  She lacks discipline, attention and manners.  It is not her fault. Both her parents did not go to school, we are not even sure when her birthday was. Her mom couldn't get  her birth certificate from the midwife as she couldn't pay for the delivery. They get by.  From time to time she begs on the streets ( sadly with her mom's permission). That was then but this is now.

She now attends the regular public school system after one year at F.L.A.G.  After school hours, she  will spend some time to review lessons with the rest of the girls ( rather than being on the street).  What a difference one year has been for Leslie Ann.  I hope she is enjoying school and learning a lot.  Love this pic with all of them in uniform, so adorable!!

We are going to start our 2nd Holiday Shoe box program , stay tuned!


Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you again,

Hugs,

The F.L.A.G team
