Daniel was placed in the children’s home by his aunt at age 8. Daniel has 4 other siblings. When his mother passed away from an illness, the children were split up because no one could care for all 5 children. During that time, we learned that Daniel and his older brother were forced to work on a coconut farm and therefore not attending school. Daniel’s aunt requested placement with Advocates of Love so that all 5 siblings could stay together and be properly cared for.
Daniel is a kind, thoughtful and courteous boy. He has a calming nature and when you spend a few minutes with him you feel relaxed. He is always willing to help and lend a hand. He loves to draw pictures and is a natural artist. He enjoys being with family and friends as well as outings into nature and discovering new places.
