Bianca from Guatemala

Miracles of Love

At midnight on August 23, *Bianca, pregnant at 13, a survivor of sexual violence, arrived at Oasis just days before her due date, brought by Guatemalan social services under court order. Our caretakers welcomed her and supplied her needs. After her first day, Bianca said, “This place is nice, and I thank God I’m here.”

Bianca went to the hospital to give birth on August 25, accompanied by her social worker and a caretaker. Bianca and her baby boy are at Arquilla, growing and easing into their new lives together in the haven afforded them and other girls in her position by Kids Alive. Bianca is receiving holistic care to help her overcome the violence she experienced and empower her to live a prosperous life as a Christian mother.

Heidy Berduo, Oasis Residential Programme coordinator, who was at Bianca’s side when she gave birth, says,

“God took care of Bianca like his own baby, and at the right time, God brought her to Oasis, and her life changed. Here, she sleeps safely and feels loved. I thank God for his goodness and for choosing me to be here and be part of these miracles of love.”

“Miracles of love” is God’s transforming work. He does this daily through staff like Heidy as they walk with the courageous young mothers in Arquilla.
