At the age of 3, when we were visiting family out of state, my little boy Agapito nearly drowned. He survived, but suffered anoxic brain injury, a chronic condition. We take care of him constantly. He suffers from temperature dysregulation and is on machines just to regulate his body temperature. While I was caring for Agapito one day, my husband had a work accident that left him unable to work. This was so stressful for our family because we didn’t know how we would not pay our bills. The utilities were about to be disconnected. When our social worker told us about Reliance Children’s Foundation, we couldn’t believe it. We had hope for the first time in a while. Reliance paid the rent and kept the power on while my husband could heal and return to work. Agapito will always need care from us. We love his big smile and how much he loves watching the same movies. He brings light to our family, and all the kids love helping to care for him.
