Our boy - M
Young M is a talented and ever so cute young boy who came to Kids Haven in January 2011. He had been sleeping on the streets and begging with his teenage mother in Alexandra. M grew up on the streets, not learning the difference between right and wrong, just living by his wits. He was considered very 'streetwise'.
M was placed at Kids Haven when he was 6 years old. What fun - in and out the creche, hurting other children, stealing food, testing patience...
Now in school, M is still as cute and cheeky as ever but no more than any other 8 year old boy. Sometimes finding school hard but learning and growing - belonging and cared for. KH successfully traced a family member in December 2012 and has started the process of family visits to build relationships. It is expected that he will be reunified in December 2014. The family loves M and is looking forward to a new beginning.
Thank you for caring for children like M - Kids Haven, 'a place where souls are mended'
