The first time I met Milkias he had just come back from the hospital for the first time after his surgery. He was already in high spirits and happy to have returned home. Almost immediately, Milkias and I had a great connection. He would come to me during all my shifts to hold my hand,…

Living in the Save A Child’s Heart house has taught me that the most mundane activities can foster the strongest bonds when met with smiles, enthusiasm, and unconditional love.
