Birthdate: November 13, 1997

Miguel loves the outdoors and the feeling of the warm sun on his face. He became a member of the Mustard Seed family in Dominican Republic when he was 10 years old. Miguel has cerebral palsy, epilepsy, limited motor function, is intellectually disabled, and uses a wheelchair. When he arrived at Hogar Immanuel he was malnourished and could not move his limbs. Miguel did not express emotions and his face was often expressionless.

After months of loving care and physical therapy, Miguel was able to show the joy he felt. Today he is known to be a happy young man who smiles frequently. Miguel enjoys music and listening to cartoons.
