Samuel has been in our community care since birth. He has a loving extended family that provides him with his emotional needs. He is cared for by his grandparents, of which both are dealing with significant health and financial issues. Samuel's mother has been mentally incapacitated since birth. She became pregnant after she was raped by someone in the community. His mother can only communicate through signing or gestures. Therefore, no one in her family was aware of the rape or pregnancy until Samuel was born.
He has been hitting all major milestones expected of a toddler and is in great physical condition.
