Chad’s mother left and abandoned him when he was 6 years old. After his mother left, his father was overcome with grief and had a mental breakdown. He could no longer care for himself or his son. Chad was sent to live with his grandmother who was very poor and struggled to feed and care for him. Chad came home to Living Hope in April of 2010. He is quite and gets along well with all of his brothers and sisters. He enjoys being part of such a big family. Chad is a kind boy who is always willing to help others.
