Paul, was placed in the custody of DCP&P early in 2017, when he was 15 years old, after his paternal grandmother who was caring for him at the time, was moved to an assisted care facility due to a broken hip and Alzheimer’s. The grandmother subsequently died later that same year. Paul’s mother had previously passed away in 2006 and his father in 2016. Despite living in a chaotic home for many years Paul has continued to apply himself in positive directions and his teachers see that he has great potential. Paul was very happy recently because he just landed his first job in a large pharmacy helping with the check out and stocking shelves. He is going to work over the Winter break and then on weekends during the school semester.
