Despite her sweet face, Isha is one of the children who has had a hard time really connecting at Rising Lotus. She has a Punky Brewster streak in her, a bit sneaky and defiant and yet still incredibly lovable. She has a ton of personality and one of the best smiles of the whole bunch but she learned a habit of lying before she came to us and she is the only one that often refuses to do her homework and gives everyone (even the other children) a difficult time.
Isha’s father killed her mother and then abandoned her when she was little. Her start in life has been a hard one. And as tough as the kids want to act sometimes, we realize that they are still little souls … and under their outward behavior, they need time to heal, trust, and find their way again.
You can’t not love this little girl when you look in her eyes. We’re hoping she’ll realize her “family” at Rising Lotus cares for her more than she realizes and that soon her spirit will ease.
