If her stepfather had his way, a little girl named Ishrat would have just disappeared.
She was the child of his wife’s first marriage They had children of their own now, and he begrudged Ishrat her place in his home.
That would be bad enough in the USA where school is mandatory and the rights of children are more protected, but Ishrat’s home nation of Bangladesh is a country where daughters are often considered expendable — and stepdaughters….? Ishrat’s future seemed hopeless.
But Jesus saw Ishrat, and he had a plan for her.
