When James Luom met Veronica Gor in Kakuma, Kenya, the two had worlds in common: Both were teenagers, both were born into Christian homes in Southern Sudan, and both had escaped slavery and death when they were just 8 years old. Mr. Luom was one of the Lost Boys of Sudan, and Miss Gor was one of the Lost Girls. Each had walked more than 2,000 miles with thousands of Sudanese children fleeing a violent government.
