Our shining star
David will be 10 on December 20, but as he's a special little boy with big ideas, we'll let him off him saying he's 11!
Named after our own Papa Dave, he is a champion child who has overcome one obstacle after another since he was abandoned in hospital by his mother when he was only a few days old.
Happy House, contacted by the hospital, supported him while he was there and were overjoyed when, in February 2011, he was well enough to come home to our family.
Mama Sue, worried he was not progressing as a baby should, took him to one doctor after another and when he was 11 months she took him to a specialist centre in Kilifi where she was told he would not amount to anything and to "take him home and love him".
We did much more than give him love, sought expert advice, put a programme of three -times daily exercises into practice, and our whole family, kids and adults, encourage him always.
David is such a confident and happy boy, who tries hard in school and always gives 100 per cent in effort. Born five days before Christmas, he is our special shining star.
