Aba will be joining the House of Joy family in May 2013. He will be 5 years old and entering kindergarten. Aba’s father is an alcoholic/drug addict and was arrested for possession of heroin, just before aba’s older sister, Wanida (who already lives at the House of Joy) applied for him to come. Aba is the youngest of 5 children and his mother is not a stable caregiver who will leave the children periodically when she is overwhelmed.
Aba is a bright child and, when we interviewed him, he said that he loves to build houses and hide motorcycles. He also loves to go fishing and hunting birds. When he grows up, he wants to be a soldier.
