15. The story of a supported child and an adoptive parent: Introducing Wiclif and thanking the adoptive parents for their 18-year story

“We've been watching Wiclif since he was a little boy who grew up to be a handsome young man with a college degree. He often mentioned that he wanted to do something to help others. I believe he will succeed. We thank him for being able to share joy and worry with him, we thank him for being able to be here for him, for being here with us despite the distance between the two continents. We also thank the Centrum Narovinu for their help, which is meaningful and beneficial for the gradual comparison of differences between people.”
