Hope Transforms: A Success Story

The hardest thing about grief is that no one else gets your personal struggle. And the hardest thing about parental relationships is that no one else gets what it meant to you. That is the story of *Gwen who is a grade seven student.

Gwen is a vibrant, well-disciplined and joyful young girl. Together with her sibling, Gwen was raised by her single mother and she has never known her father. In August this year, her mother became ill and passed away a few weeks later.

While the burial preparations were ongoing Gwen kept attending school. Her strength and composure was admirable. The social workers kept doing several follow-ups to ensure that she was okay psychologically and she constantly confirmed her desire to be in school. Normally, you find that a grieving child would prefer to stay alone and away from school but this was not the case for Gwen. Even after the burial, the girl came back to school and with so much courage and determination to continue with her life. 

Despite the loss of her mother Gwen keeps saying that she wants to continue with school and make the best of life so that she can make her mother and sibling proud. In most situations, children tend to give up when they encounter the death of a parent. With Gwen – despite being left at a tender age – she is a demonstration that one should not let their pain hinder their dreams.

For her, this has been a journey of holding on to faith and trusting that God has good plans for her. As young as she is, she has held to hope even when the pain was unbearable. Her determination and effort to keep fighting till the end is admirable. Gwen is a young lady who is willing to fight all obstacles in order to achieve her dreams and goals. She is an encouragement to many.

We thank God for her uncle who took up the mantle and is now raising her. The gift of assurance and knowing that God has provided someone to take care of her is a great blessing. The progress so far is amazing and we pray that she will continue in the same spirit and be able to pursue her career and become a responsible person in the future.
