The girls are here… THINK’s 8th group of girls will go through a 9 month rehabilitation program this year. Process consist of life skills training, educational classes, counseling, and spiritual awareness. Special Mention by Rosana Schaack: We have an 18 year-old mother of triplet girls in this group that was referred to THINK by the City Mayor of Monrovia earlier this year. She and the triplets have been at the Juvenile Transit Center waiting for Cycle 8 to get some empowerment skills to help her raise the girls. Her husband was employed by the City Mayor to help with income for the family. The couple is Grand Bassa County. They had brought the babies to Monrovia to be adopted, but there is a ban on international adoptions right now. Read blog post http://ow.ly/2NudV

Graduation Day, 2010

Cycle 7 girls graduate, 2010
Cycle 7 girls graduate, 2010

On May 30, 2010 we were most honored to arrive at the graduation ceremony of cycle 7 of the THINK Rehabilitation Home. We are grateful to donors from Global Giving for supporting us with funding. We were very proud to present our 24 graduates from 7 of the 15 counties in Liberia. Remember them in your prayers as they step out in faith to begin a second chance in life.

We want to remember 10 year-old Mina Hallowanger, who made the jewelry that I wore that day. She lost her battle with AIDS on February 27, 2010. Mina was a resident at our Juvenile Transit Center. We pray that a cure can be found for AIDS in the near future.

We were most honored to have Madam Katumu Boikai (VP of Liberia''s wife) to speak words of encouragement to the graduates. Nigerian movie star, Tonto, who happened to be in the country, also graced us with her presence.

Please take a minute to view the images from the graduation. As you can see, this was truly a blessed occasion.
