Nadia draws a parallel between 3 events that brings her closer to understanding that we are all God’s children and regardless of how we are born, we are meant to be.
The first event is when she met Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah at a networking event. He was born with a severely deformed right leg. In Ghana, it is common to kill children born with deformity because for centuries it has been seen as a shame for the family and often time people think the mother has sinned. These children are denied education and finish up crawling on the street.
Against all odds, Emmanuel’s mom took a bold stance and refused to have him killed. Her husband left her to raise her handicapped son by herself.
On Friday, Nadia met Cynthia, another beautiful soul who was born without ears. Their incidents put Nadia’s struggle into a different perspective making her realized that living a fulfilled life is a choice.
