Read Anderson touching story
When Anderson was just eleven years old, his mother received a gunshot wound that resulted in significant paralysis. Since Anderson has cerebral palsy, his mother knew she could no longer properly care for him. A religious friend of the community knew this family, and made arrangements for him to join L’Arche. It was not an easy transition for Anderson. He became deeply distressed and physically aggressive. But with time, the community found a place in his heart. He came to discover that in the community he was loved, and had a home. He has a passion for music and cars, and he enjoys these simple hobbies.
