When Thangzareng was one month old, his father died, leaving his mother helpless to provide for her child. Fortunately, for her, she found a new husband but sadly, like so many young widows in India, she had to make a desperate choice...a life of hopeless poverty or finding a new home for her child. So, in 2005, Thangzareng's grandmother brought him to Angels' Place, saving him and his family from life on the streets.
Thangzareng remembers his early childhood as one of helplessness and hardship. Now, he thrives in a loving home where he treasures the love and support he receives. He enjoys school and particularly finds Science "very interesting". He also loves sports and reading and dreams someday of becoming an officer in the Indian Air Force. His life at Angels' Place is rich beyond his wildest dreams and because of the nurturing environment and support he receives, he has confidence in his future. Thangzareng was baptized a Christian in 2012 and hopes to one day become "someone who is a source of blessings to others."
Because of the hope they now feel, so many children at Angels' Place share this vision for themselves...to give back and make the world a better place. This is the greatest blessing of Angels' Place... each child we help is like a pebble in a pond, rippling out more joy and love into the world.
