Strengthening Adoptive Families

MICHAELA DEPRINCE

Professional Ballerina

As a young orphan in war-torn Sierra Leone, Michaela DePrince endured tragedy, discrimination, and near death before being adopted by a family in the United States. Today, the professional ballerina shares her story as a beautiful example of the power of hope—and credits her adoptive family with helping all of her childhood dreams come true.
