Andy was the second child to receive a scholarship. He hadn’t lived with his parents and two older siblings for over a year. He had been placed in foster care when he was four, and within the year’s time, had lived with two different families. He was such a special child, but for reasons unknown, he had never spoken a word. He understood everything and even though he didn’t read out loud, he could comprehend, and write quite well for his age. Doctors said there wasn’t a physical reason Andy couldn’t speak, and with time and love, he most likely “would” speak.
The two girls took him under their wings, and since he didn’t talk, they taught him how to sign. What a cute little threesome they were. They were blissfully unaware of what the future held.
