Mily’s Story

Hi!! I am Najari Mireya, but most people know me as Mily. Since I was a little girl I have only wanted a mother I could love. When I was little, because of the very low pay she received at her job, my mother left to look for work elsewhere.

At the place where she left me, the people didn’t love me. The lady had two children already and they didn’t like me. They hit me and didn’t accept me. During that time, I saw my mother only a few times when she came to see how I was.

A few years passed and I left the house where she left me and went and found my mom, where she took good very good care of me. A short time later my mother died. Before she died, she asked a lady who had been raised as her sister to take care of me.

From that time on, my aunt took care of me until I was adopted by a family of doctors. I lived with them for three years but then I couldn’t live with them anymore because they didn’t have very much time or attention to give me.

So then we found the home Shadow of His Wings and I came to live here the 12th of February in 2008. When I came in, they treated me very well. I have now finished middle school and have started careers. I have achieved some of my dreams and goals and have been able to develop the talents and abilities that God has placed in my life. I plan to finish school.

I am very thankful because God has taken me out of the place where I was suffering. I give thanks to God for the lives of the people who have cared for me, like those who direct the James Project.

Since I have been living here, I have learned to be obedient and to go past limits and achieve things that I used to fear. I know that one of the purposes God has for me here [at Shadow of His Wings] is to form me into a leader.

Thank you for all of the love, happiness and above all, the support to be much better and helping me to know my Heavenly Father. God bless you all.
