Augustin is five years old, and until a few months ago, he had never experienced the tender love of a mother. He was rescued out of an orphanage in Kyrgyzstan a few months ago, finally able to begin his healing journey with the support of his foster mother, Maria.
But now, his new life of stability and safety at home are being threatened.
Maria has been fostering Augustin for 9 months, and she cares for him deeply. She takes him to speech and behavior therapy regularly, and she has been taking classes of her own on caring for children like Augustin who’ve experienced major trauma. Because of Maria’s care, Augustin’s teachers have noticed a MAJOR improvement in his lessons and behavior, and he is beginning to thrive in school!
After being abused by his birth mother to the point of hospitalization, Augustin is experiencing the genuine love of a mother for the first time in his life. However, Augustin’s new-found security is at risk!
