From Tragedy to Home


Magdolna and Adorjan are two children who live in the Alesd Home orphanage in Northwestern Romania. They have lived in this home for many years now. Both of their parents are deceased. Magdolna and Adorjan witnessed their father’s self-inflicted death which affected them so much that their speech was impaired (it caused them to stammer). They both were taken out of school for one year because of this speech defect. Now, several years later, both Magdolna and Adorjan have recovered their ability to speak normally, have resumed their studies in school, and have adapted well to life in the orphanage. Both are progressing well.
