Derek has an older sister who is in high school and volunteers at OA. He also has a little sister who is in the daycare. Derek is a great kid, and very well behaved. We are usually surprised when children come in well behaved after learning about their past and almost complete independence outside of the daycare. Derek has been left at home many days by himself, while both his mom and dad go to work He was not used to a lot of rules, but has adapted very well. Many times his older sister, who is in high school, had to stay at home from school when a neighbor, or a babysitter isn't able take care of him. Recently, Derek’s mom has participated in the on-site Bible study. She is a non-practicing Jehova’s Witness. We believe her heart is softening toward the Lord and we are praying for the salvation of the entire family! Please pray for Derek’s family, that they would see the truth of how much God loves them and desires for them to be part of the family!
