20 Years of Hope: Tobias

Tobias was born in 2018 with a medical condition called anal atresia. With this condition, the anal opening is either blocked or missing altogether, making it terribly difficult (or even impossible) to expel any food that is taken in. Sadly, this led to Tobias’ abandonment and early life in an orphanage setting. Although anal atresia […]
