Mohamed Bzeek, 62, of Azusa, California, has devoted his life to making a difference in the lives of these poor youngsters.
He’s been fostering kids since 1989, when he and his then-wife Dawn began accepting them into their house, according to reports. Unfortunately, one of the couple’s foster kids died in 1991, altering their perspective on the process and leading them to their real purpose.
Mohamed has spent the last 30 years of his life focused on fostering kids who are unwell or terminally ill.
The trick is to love them as if they were ones own, Mohamed explained.
He understand they’re ill. He is sure they’ll perish. As a human being, he does his best and leave the rest to God.
Mohamed and Dawn couldn’t take the notion of their kids leaving without the affection and warmth that a parental figure provides, particularly in their final months of life.
The couple divorced in 2013, but Mohamed has maintained his charitable endeavours and is doing everything he can to help California’s foster kids.
According to reports, the 62-year-old has buried ten kids. Some have even passed away in his loving embrace. He claims to have cared after 80 kids in all.
His house is the only house in Los Angeles that admits orphans and youngsters who are about to die, he explained. He has worked with 80 youngsters since 1989.
Mohamed is currently caring for a 6-year-old girl who has a rare brain condition that has rendered her blind, deaf, and paralysed in her limbs and legs. Because of her disability, she requires 24-hour care.
Doctors determined that there was nothing further that could be done medically to preserve the girl’s life when she was just two years old. She is still alive and battling four years later, thanks to Mohamed’s care.
They give birth in the hospital, and then they go, Mohamed explained in an interview last year. They are not named by their relatives. ‘Baby boy,’ ‘Baby girl,’ says the tabloid. He give them names and call them by their names.
Mohamed, a former Libyan immigrant who came to the United States 40 years ago to study electrical engineering, admits that caring for terminally ill children has taken its toll.
He realised it’s heartbreaking, he admitted. He realizes it requires a lot of effort, and knows it’ll hurt him at times. He is sad but in his opinion, they should assist one another.
And the effort of this great man has not gone unappreciated. He has a well-deserved reputation in the California adoption community.
If anyone ever contacts them and says, ‘This kid has to go home on hospice,’ there’s just one name they think of, said Melissa Testerman, a DCFS intake coordinator who arranges places for sick kids.
He’s the only one who would take a youngster who might not survive.
I don’t know about you, but I believe that kind beings like Mohamed deserve far more respect and acclaim than they now receive.
