She works odd jobs to make money, while Precious’ grandmother cooks food for truckers to make a living. Precious’ mother was considering taking her children to a children’s home, because she cannot afford to pay for a good school.

life than she had. Precious would be very grateful for a sponsor and an opportunity to go to school.
