Many of you have been following and asking about Snowy’s case. Thank you for your support and prayers. Clearly they played a part in bringing freedom, not just to Snowy but 4 of her precious siblings.
Now we can share some of the details of this case.
Years ago a “businessman” came to a tiny town in an Eastern European country. Many of its inhabitants were alcoholics, including Snowy’s parents. Long story short, Snowy’s parents sold her for a bottle of alcohol.
She was trafficked for 3 years and endured the unimaginable. When we met Snowy 1 1/2 year ago, she was riddled with disease and infested with lice. After a year of living with a loving, safe and healthy family she was thriving.
And then the unthinkable happened. Just a few weeks ago, Snowy's mother, accompanied by the “businessman,” came to court to try to gain custody of Snowy’s again. They came sharply dressed and full of falsehoods. Our team did a brilliant job defending Snowy.
The day after court, the judge sent an inspector to Snowy’s biological family’s home. The nice clothes were gone. Instead, they discovered Snowy’s mother and her accomplice drunk. 4 other children surrounded them.
With the court's blessing, Snowy's host family offered to take in Snowy's siblings. After almost 5 painful years, these 4 children are finally reunited with their sister!
The rest is history! All five of the kids are safe. Snowy's siblings are receiving the physical and psychological help they need. Sadly it appears the children, ages 3-13, had already been abused and possibly sold for sex.
The children have a long journey of healing ahead of them. We hope to bring them to The Sanctuary for intensive, holistic healing.
