Harvey has four siblings: Harold who is 17 years old, Hanes who is 12 years old, Henry who is 6, and Harley who is just 4 years old. Their parents, Edgar and Christina, are expecting their sixth child. Our volunteers first met Harvey when a team was teaching in the public school he attended. Although he is very shy and quiet, Harvey is a good student; he listens closely to the teacher and participates in class. His father, Edgar, is a house  ...
