Tekla

Tekla lost her mother to tragic circumstances just before Christmas 2016, becoming a total orphan at just 19 months of age. She came to Naomi’s Village with her twin 4-year-old sisters, tiny and afraid at first. Tekla has since grown in size and courage gradually, and is now the newest toddler princess to grace our halls. She quickly figured out where the candy box was in Uncle Bob’s office and she often proudly marches in on her own to visit and get a “sweet”.
