Hello everyone, I'm known as Helio! 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: September 15, 2005

Since: November 25, 2007

"Helio is a special boy with a good sense of humor, however, he has difficulties in learning and has problems in school. He can hardly read or write. He is in the 5th grade for the third time because the exam is such a big challenge for him. Helio has been with us since he was 3 years old, along with his older brother Armando. They have a traumatic background, but we trust the lord for a marvelous future for him!"

- Corrie Ockhuysen
