Heidy’s father passed away near the end of 2018. Heidy’s mother does housework for families, earning around Q100 ($12) a week.

Heidy spent 5 months in Casa Jackson from February to July 2019. When she arrived, just before her fourth birthday she weighed just 25 lbs. During her time in Casa Jackson, Heidy gained 7 lbs. leaving Casa Jackson at a healthy weight.

Heidy’s favorite color is pink and her favorite animals are kittens. She likes to listen to children’s songs and her favorite is ‘Polloto Piu’ which is about a chick.
