Rebecca lived in an orphanage in Haiti. When she was fourteen-years-old, she was “adopted” by the Florida family who owned the orphanage. The adoption was a sham, and her new family quickly became her captors. For nine years, they forced her to work 15 hours each day in the house, cooking, cleaning, and doing yard work. They beat her, isolated her, and threatened to deport her to Haiti if she tried to leave. Two of the three family members were charged and convicted of human trafficking.
