Birthdays. They are one of the most celebrated days in a person’s lifetime. Whether it’s your dad’s birthday, your grandpa’s 90th birthday, or even your dog’s birthday, birthdays are a pretty big deal. 

Except for little Sushmita. 

She had been abandoned by both her parents, and left in the care of Global Family. While trying to collect personal information from Sushmita, they discovered that she didn’t know alot about herself. Such as, where she was from, how old she was…even her birthday. 

Global Family did their best to try and find out more about little Sushmita, but came up short. 

After a while of being in the shelter, the coordinators decided Sushmita had gone too long without being celebrated, so they decided it was time to throw her a party – a birthday party

So, officially on August 4th, 2020, Sushmita had her very first “seventh” birthday. There were balloons and cake, crowns and confetti. All to celebrate the little life of Sushmita. New friends came to join in the celebration, and if you couldn’t tell from the picture, she was all smiles.
