About the Author

Jeanne Celestine Lakin is an award-winning author and national speaker. She has inspired thousands by sharing her survival story during the Rwandan genocide, underscoring the power of compassion, forgiveness, and the unification of the human family. By age 14, Jeanne was attending an American school studying English and grappling with what she experienced during the genocide—the abuse suffered during years spent as an orphan.  In adulthood, she earned multiple degrees, became a specialist in international adoption and established a charity. Passionate about the unmet needs of children, she founded the nonprofit organization, One Million Orphans that raises money to provide care to orphans around the world. Her story is by far the most fascinating and compelling of a person prevailing over adversity.
