WILLIAM BIRTHDAY (Approx.): 2002 JOINED WINGS OF HOPE: May 2014

One morning in early May 2014, when the Wings
leadership opened the gate for the day they found a
young disabled boy sitting in the driveway, abandoned on
the Wings of Hope doorstep. The leadership brought him
into the home and tried to determine who he was and
what he needed. While he could walk, he had an obvious
physical disability, with weakness on one side and
stroke-like symptoms. At first the leadership thought he
couldn’t talk, but after he became comfortable William
began to speak. He has some intellectual disabilities and
we believe he is on the autism spectrum. He also has
seizures.
As William has become more and more comfortable
at Wings of Hope and with his new family, his personality
has begun to shine. He loves music. He likes to
joke around and is very funny. William loves to eat. He is
fascinated when Wings of Hope has visitors and loves interacting
with them. When he doesn’t like something,
William has no problem making his feelings known.
William actively participates in all the activities at
Wings of Hope and is doing well in the educational and
recreational programs.
