Andrew's Story of Hope

The reason we are here

Andrew Safari was born in May of 1983 in Nairobi Kenya. While he was growing up, Andrew displayed a marked delay in developmental milestones. He did not crawl until he was a year old, for example, and did not walk until the age of two. His family did not worry much about this because Andrew was their first and only child (at the time). They assumed he was spoiled and did not want to put much effort into achieving his goals since he seemed to rely all the time on help from others the family had available to assist him. By the age of three, Andrew had developed little to no speech. He did not master his ABC’s until he was approximately six years old. Eventually, he did reach a few milestones, but at a far slower pace than the average child.
