Many of Espwa's children are not true orphans. They may have a living parent, but they are unable to provide for their child, so they bring them to Espwa. A lot of visitors ask if the parents ever visit their kids. Sometimes they do, like last week when Magalie came by to visit her four Espwa kids, Semana, Caroline, Juno, and Junoson. She is a single mother abandoned by her husband, and she is raising her fifth child at home alone in Camp Perrin. The reunion was a special one to witness, as the family talked and played. It was visibly difficult for Magalie to say goodbye, but she also showed great pride in the people her eldest daughters are growing up to be, and knows that is because of Espwa, a place of opportunity and hope for her kids.
