Felipito was placed in the children’s home by the government agency Conani. Felipito was orphaned by abandonment and neglect. The department of education began the investigation because Felipito had not been attending school.  He was abandoned by his mother shortly after birth and was living with a man who was not a relative. Felipito was not receiving adequate food, clothing or support in his previous living situation.

Felipito now has an engaging personality and you can always tell when he enters a room.  He enjoys baseball and basketball and is always on the move.  He loves to play with his friends and be outside.  He is creative and inventive when it comes to creating art.
