David remembers being left alone all night while his mother was forced to sell her body at a nearby motel. His days were filled with abuse and neglect as his mother’s “friends” exploited his innocence by exposing him to things online that no child should ever experience. Not only that, but the sexual abuse his mother had been enduring shifted to him as well at the hand of other men knowing there was no one nearby to protect him. Before he came to International Network of Hearts it had been far too long since David had attended school or had a warm meal to eat. With major gaps in his education, David faces unique challenges, but is thankful for a safe place to lay his head and the knowledge that he will be cared for as every child should be.
