At only 9 years old, Junior has experienced a tremendous amount of trauma in his life. He witnessed his father physically beat his mother, and then his father was killed right in front of him. Junior also suffered abuse. He was placed with us due to his mother’s inability to care for him due to her own mental health. We have never seen this level of trauma in a child this age.

Junior is going to need intense treatment and prayer for his emotional, spiritual, and physical healing.
