Hello everyone, I'm known as Zefanias! I'm so glad you are interested in knowing more about me.


Here is a younger picture of me so you can see how much I've grown

Birthdate: November 23, 2007

Since: July 15, 2011

"Zefanias and his twin brother Junior have been with us for many years. The twins used to live with the sister of their great-grandmother, a strong Christian older woman who comes to visit them every now and then. Zefanias goes to a school for children with special needs. He does very well in his studies there and achieves above expectations. He passed the 3rd-grade exam and is now in the 4th grade."
