Her fate turned better when a single white American woman, Anna Belle Illien adopted her. She was the founder of the Illien Adoptions International INC. The conclusion of this story that the life can turn better and everyone deserve a happy life.
We celebrate the International Day of Happiness since 2013 around the world. The initiator of this event was the grandson of Nelson Mandela,Ndaba Mandela and the daughter of Bill Clinton, Chelsea Clinton. Two years later the UN formulated 17 development goals that seek to end poverty, reduce inequality and protect our planet which lead to well-being and happiness.

On this occassion the United Nations invited everyone to celebrate the International Day of happiness using hashtag #SmallSmurfsBigGoals.
