After Hubert’s father abandoned the family, his mother had to put more efforts to look after his younger sibling with severe special needs. As the eldest and only son, Hubert grew up in an impoverished family where he felt unloved and was burdened with parental expectations. Despite the adversity, he is a talented student athlete with a strong passion in fencing and is determined to pursue his athletic dream.
FIC#021: Story of Hubert and His Family
“I am grateful for the parenting advice for my SEN daughter. It turns out that what I have done was not proper and I’ve overparented my daughter while neglecting the need of my son. With the guidance, I have sorted out many issues of my family and I have found a right direction in life!”
“With help, I am more capable of playing a dual role in my children’s life. My son is motivated and positive while my daughter has improved a lot and cried less. Sometimes I wish for some ‘me time’, I hope I will be able to do that in a near future. I will keep going and moving forward.”
It was at the family’s lowest ebb when their case was referred to us via our network of social workers. In an interview with the South China Morning Post, Lisa shared the uplifting story of how her family began the process of turning their lives around with our support.
What will happen when Lisa’s son Hubert joins force with Andrew, our donor family, to take on a challenge? This “SOUL Amazing Day” social-educational experience captured the fun adventure for two kids of similar age but of different family backgrounds – watch now!
