Eric is just starting his third year at The University of Life. He is a super intelligent little boy and very perceptive about the people around him.
Eric lives with a family relative because his young parents abandoned him and are separated. Emotionally Eric is younger than his 9 years suggest. He loves attention and has clearly missed out on physical bonding and emotional stability that a loving mother and father could have offered.
In the classroom Eric is a helpful boy, always willing to help out and very tuned into good and bad behaviour. We have noticed him distancing himself from students which typically cause trouble.
Eric says that he would like to be a doctor but he is aware of his poverty and afraid that he won’t be able to achieve his dreams. Please pray for Eric, that he will gain self-confidence and not let his doubts shadow his obvious gifts and talents.
