Leslie's mother is an orphaned girl who was left under the care of her aunt who was always mistreating her. In the hopes of escaping the pain and suffering at home, she fell in with the wrong crowd, got pregnant, and ended up in child marriage with a much older man. He would abuse both her and her daughter, Leslie, who was only 3 years old at the time. When the violence and abuse escalated, Leslie's mother escaped with the help of a neighbor who brought them to MCF. Leslie is an extremely jovial, talkative, and friendly child who has now found hope and a safe home at MCF.
