At some point during the celebration, they would have bowed their heads in prayer, asking God to bless Leah on her birthday and to make her dreams come true.
But this birthday, her 15th, was different and her family spent the day crying and fervently praying. They don’t know where she is.
Leah was one of the 110 schoolgirls kidnapped by members
of the terrorist group Boko Haram in February from their school in Dapchi, in northeast Nigeria.
