In Kazakhstan, Saule Sadykova was born with birth defects and abandoned by her biological parents. They believed she was cursed because she had a cleft lip, a raised eye and a disabled leg.
Saule was placed in an orphanage and eventually in foster care; but before she had a home, she met a woman from Virginia who would change her life.
Vicky Charbonneau, a lady in her fifties, moved to Kazakhstan five years ago to open a J127 Ranch with a friend to help children and single mothers. She met Saule and decided she wanted to raise money to fly her to the United States to have surgery.

After a successful operation and a new prosthetic leg, Saule say’s “I’m riding. I’m jumping. I’m horse riding. I’m playing. I’m swimming.”
Charbonneau said she moved to the communist country after going on a mission trip with her church and seeing the desperation of abandoned kids.
She said, “Caring for kids. Marginalized kids is what I do. Every life is precious. I’m not good at fundraising. I’m not good at a lot of things, but I am good at loving kids. I saw the desperation with the kids. They didn’t have any chances.”
