Edgar – Never give up

Edgar is an example of a child unwilling to quit, determined to succeed and refusing to see himself as handicapped.

He was abandoned by his mother and never knew his father.

His grandmother was confined to a wheelchair and begged in the streets. Edgar pushed her amongst the cars. When Edgar was 5 years old an automobile ran over him and his leg was mangled to the point the only alternative was amputation. The judicial powers-that-be removed him from his grandmother and sent him to Casa along with his two younger sisters. From the moment he arrived he has been an inspiration to all of the children and I believe the staff as well.

He runs with his artificial leg, climbs, plays soccer and does it all with a huge smile on his face.

He is amazing!
