David is an extremely bright boy who loves learning and is very serious about his education. He lost his mother to AIDS at a young age and was left in the hands of his abusive uncle. Shortly afterwards, he entered the home of his sickly aunt to then be chased away by her husband. Despite all of this, this resilient boy still has great aspirations and hopes to become a policeman when he grows up.
Ariana is a biological child of Stephen and Julia, the parents of the Beloved Caring Hearts family home. She is only 3-years-old and is particular in who she talks to. Ariana tends to be shy, especially around strangers. However, she loves her big brothers and the three of them watch out for their only sister. She loves playing with her brothers and laughing at them when they start acting silly.
They were left under the care of their crippled, 80-year-old grandmother who was unable to provide for them after the death of their father and abandonment of their mentally unstable mother. Francis and his brother would go without food for days and were often forced to scavenge in very dirty conditions. Unfortunately, the traumatic events of his past have scarred him psychologically. Although Francis is a polite & sweet boy, he is often very withdrawn.
At 4-years-old, Samuel and his brother, Francis, lost their father. Shortly after his death, their mother became mentally deranged and abandoned both boys. Samuel and Francis were left to beg for food from home to home because their elderly grandmother was not able to take care of them. One day, a kind hearted neighbor brought them to the Beloved Caring Hearts family home. Samuel is a light-hearted, jovial, and obedient boy.
Zipporah joined our Beloved Caring Hearts home after the loss of her parents to AIDS. It was a critical decision to bring her into our home, as her other options were bleak. Zipporah's only other caretaker was her grandmother who sold beer and was a harlot. In fear that she would be subject to certain abuse, Beloved decided to adopt her into a loving home in 2013.
Born in 2004, is the second daughter of a mother who passed away from AIDS. After the death of their mother, Naputu and her two sisters lived with their aunt and numerous cousins in a one-room home. The aunt could not afford to keep Naputu and her younger sister, DingDing, as the family was barely able to afford one square meal a day. In April 2014, she was adopted into the Beloved Caring Hearts family where she immediately and gladly assumed the duties as the elder sister in the home.
Younger biological sister of Naputu, was born in 2008. As the youngest child, DingDing took the loss of her mother the hardest. However, her elder sisters surrounded her with love. When Naputu was adopted into Beloved Caring Hearts in April 2014, She was also brought into the home in order to keep the sisters together. She has adjusted to finally starting school and learning to get along with her new brothers and sisters.
