I would like to introduce you to Aaron. He is one of the men who lives in the Foundations of Love Home. He believes he is 27 years old but is unsure of his exact age or birthday.
Aaron was picked up on December 12, 1988, at a gas station in China. He was all by himself and was taken to an orphanage. Since no information was left with Aaron the orphanage gave him a birthday of 12-12-88, the day they picked him up. Aaron was born with polio and walks with a brace. He doesn’t use it all the time because the brace bothers his skin.
He was adopted at age 13.5 by missionaries. Aaron is the 6th of 9 children in his adoptive family. He knows his younger siblings better than the older ones. Many of them were married or in college when he was adopted into his new family. Sadly, he does not know where most of them live and has very little contact with them. He last saw his parents for 1 hour in 2016 as they were passing through visiting all the children and raising missionary funds. It has been several years since he last saw any of his siblings.
Due to his polio and other health issues, Aaron had to quit his job where he worked on an assembly line. He is late on several months’ rent and has had to cancel his car insurance because he doesn’t have any money coming in from a job or his adoptive family. Without a car, he cannot try to find work. He believes, since his parents are missionaries they cannot send him any money. Unless the money is for a medical bill, his siblings will not cover any expenses for him.
While listening to Aaron tell his story, he never once seemed as though he wanted pity or felt down because of his circumstances.
Foundations of Love is putting out a special fundraising call to help Aaron. Our goal is $4000 to help cover his bills and any future bills which may arise before his disability is approved.
Will you help Aaron to continue to be a Survivor?
