Reuben exudes confidence and swagger. He knows who he is, and he knows where he's going: onto great things. He doesn't remember a lot about his life before the orphanage, but what he does remember is difficult for him to talk about. His dad died within weeks of him being born from an awful, fast-acting illness. His mom died shortly after, leaving Reuben in the care of his older siblings. They would take turns caring for him while the others worked small jobs trying to earn some money to buy cow's milk so that he could survive. When he was two years old, concerned neighbors contacted Pastor Richard and Mama Hellen. They recognized that he was in danger of not surviving, so they took Rueben into their own home before the orphanage even existed. They were the only parents he knew before he got his sponsor parents. He now feels incredibly blessed to have not only one set of parents who care about his well-being, but two. His gratitude is apparent, and he is determined to work hard and make them proud. 

Built on love and hope.
