Rejected Treasure

This is a heart-wrenching story of a baby who was rejected at birth by her biological father. He had wanted the child be aborted but the mother rejected this and he abandons her. The abandoned mother moved on – she married a good man from her village and her daughter was adopted by this loving stepfather. The story takes a dramatic turn when the child, at 7 years old, is told the truth that her “father” is not her biological father. Her world comes crashing down and she now has to deal with this new truth in her little life. She is rejected again when she tries to contact her biological father and his family, and has to contend with depression and the pain of rejection. Prayer, faith and the love of her mother and stepfather helps her to forgive and move on. Her story is an inspiration for children facing similar problems.
