Hello everyone, I'm known as Lorenço! 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: May 18, 2004

Since: March 10, 2007

"Lorenço is such a special boy. He came to live with us at two years of age. He was badly treated and abused by his father and stepmother; they both ended up in prison. Since then, Lorenço has seen his father a few times. He is now in the 8th grade and loves to be in the worship team of our church. He is very gifted with music. Lorenço is friendly and always willing to help."

- Corrie Ockhuysen

We praise the Lord that Lorenço has become more open, happier, and that he's taking school more seriously.
