Amani Joseph Fortson

Meet Amani (peace)! He is estimated to be just over a year old (April 2014). His mother abandoned him with a neighbor and said she was going to the store and then never returned. The neighbor took care of him for a week and then decided the mother was probably not coming back. He’s having a bit of a hard time adjusting, and is quite underweight but he’s starting to smile more and open up.

Orphans are easier to ignore before you know their names. They are easier to ignore before you see their faces. It is easier to pretend they’re not real before you hold them in your arms. But once you do, everything changes.
