The sad destiny of a disabled child whose father is no longer caring about him!
You would never be able to imagine what happened to this little Quinten Douglas Wood. This child has suffered the indifference of the world and he was only loved by his brother and sister. Valerie Wood Harber, his sister, fought for him to let him have a normal life until the day he died and now she is telling us how her little brother was struggling to survive.
“I met my biological father nine years ago. Then I learnt that I have two little brothers. Three days after our meeting, my father asked me if they can come live with me because he had to travel abroad, in those days, they were only 6 and 7 years old.” she said.
1 My two little brothers: Quinten and Cameron:
Quinten was born with a rare disability: his chromosome 9 has the shape of a ring. He can’t walk, talk or care for himself. But this boy who was always happy likes to be treated like a normal boy, not as a fragile baby.
I took care of Quinten and Cameron for about 4 years. I have come to a point where I cannot handle it anymore. Our father sent us money but I must always work. Finally, I had to ask my father to come back and take them.
After two years abroad, my father returned to live in the United States. I was very excited! They are only four hours away, and I was able to visit them as possible as I could.
