Meet Khalib and Adrian. “Both boys were diagnosed with NF at birth. They got it from me. Neither has had to have surgery, but Khalib has to a few MRIs because he has a nodule on his optic nerve. Khalib also has ADHD and left-sided hemiparesis cerebral palsy. He also has a 4th-grade reading level. Adrian has ADD and has resource teachers. They both have an IEP and get extra help and time for tests.
This pandemic has put a little stress financial stress on me. I’m always worried about having enough food on the table. I used to babysit for 3 families, and now down to just one. Not all the parents are back to work, so sometimes I go to food pantries.”
B Kind provided both Khalib and Adrian with new Chromebooks to facilitate their online learning, as they were both sharing an old laptop to connect to classes.
