In my research, I found that both of these boys have special needs. Jackson has albinism and was taken to an orphanage by his mother to keep him out of danger, and Noel was born with down syndrome and was abandoned on church steps. I compared this family’s worldview to my own cultures because no matter the children’s differences, they still have open arms to care for all of them.
