Our 1st Born (age unknown, mother died early, absent father)
He is an example of the hard life the children left behind. Simon's House gives them hope to break the cycle of poverty. He has a long way ahead of him.
Setback: he still has a father, albeit absent. Hadn't been in the picture for a few years.
Through the great vine the father learned the boy receives financial support.
He saw an opportunity for himself: selling the boy (for a monthly fee).
When that didn't work he took the boy back. The Indian leadership went to visit the boy a couple of weeks later: he was unsupervised, playing in the dirt, his cloths were too big and his hands were infected.
The smile on his face was vanished.
The father was shown pictures of his son playing with his brothers, eating well, simple: being cared for.
It took a while until the father realized that the boy is better off in the orphanage. once he understood he brought the boy back - and then came and visited on a monthly bases.
