Hello everyone, I'm known as Zidan! 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: August 30, 2001

Since: November 1, 2007

"Zidan (that’s what we call him) is a beautiful boy. He was born with cerebral palsy and that’s why he has a little problem with his walk. Zidan goes to a school for children with special needs, and he loves school. Last year he told us that he wanted to live with his aunt, unfortunately, that did not work out and after a few weeks, he came back to the center."

- Corrie Ockhuysen

We praise the Lord that Zidon is getting is getting bigger and stronger.
