Richard is one of the children who came to us without a surname or birthdate. In fact, he found it very odd that the others had surnames and he did not. The Bruynings, who are the founders of ACH, have given him their surnames so as to make life a little easier for him. He was dropped off by a neighboor three years ago, and no one has since come to visit or claim him. We have learned that both of his parents are deceased. He is an excellent singer and loves to pray. He has showed improvement performance in his education in high school.
