The Incredible Journey

Dawa Drolma was born in a Tibetan community the same year her family's business went bankrupt. With hefty tuition bills to pay for their older children, Dawa's parents sent her away. Dawa was passed around from relative to relative, always struggling to find a place where she belonged.
