Fernando lives with his grandma and two sisters. His mom is an addict that works in the red light district, and while she is an active part of their lives, she isn’t a stable parent for her children. Fernando is a bright, lively and active boy. He had never attended school, but is learning quickly. He is used to fending for himself, but is learning how to give up control and depend on others. We hope his mom will soon be open to receiving help with her struggles. In the meantime, Fernando’s grandma is learning how to be a stable caregiver for her grandchildren.
