Expected to marry at 12, Lillian in Kenya ran away and found hope through World Vision.
Bestselling author Debbie Macomber met Lillian and heard her story "of amazing bravery and tenacity."
Lillian has now graduated high school! Read her inspiring story.
My fifteen-year-old granddaughter told me she wanted to be a doctor. Maddy was around eleven or twelve at the time. She made this announcement matter-of-factly, secure in the belief that she could be anything she chose to be. I explained that her grandpa and I had set up a college fund for her and that we would do all we could to help her achieve her goal. There's no doubt in my mind that Maddy will follow through and one day become a wonderful physician, astronaut, Broadway star, or anything else she might choose to be. Her future is set, her path paved.
