Vio is ten. She lived with her mother and father until very recently when she was taken away by child protection services due to constant physical abuse. Her mother would frequently beat her with a hot iron rod, causing severe head injuries and even putting her into a coma for ten days on one occasion. She even slit her throat, but was unable to kill her because she did not cut deep enough. Her body is covered in scars from the incidents. At a certain point the beatings became so bad that she fled from her family, was found on the street by the police who then passed her along to child protective services.
Yet, despite the horrible things she has endured, she is a very sweet, loving girl. Unfortunately, her parents never sent her to school so she cannot read, write, recognize numbers, or do math for that matter. Vio wants nothing more than a love. Now she has us, but we also need some others – sponsors who will help us to love and pour into her.
