This is Andrew on his grandfather’s back. Andrew was born in April 2018, his mother delivered him by c-section. Following the surgery, Andrew’s mother developed a severe infection which led to the surgical removal of her uterus in a desperate attempt to save her life. Tragically, the infection continued to rage and ultimately claimed her life. Andrew’s grandparents immediately took over his care, but without enough money to purchase formula or adequate knowledge on how to sustain a newborn without breast milk, Andrew began to deteriorate. After several weeks Andrew’s family was directed to Joyful Motherhood. By that time, Andrew was severely wasted and incredibly fragile. In this picture, Andrew is 14months old, he is still small for his age but with the dedication and love of his family and support from JM, he continues to grow and improve.
