Mihai was born in 2011. His mother, Romina, grew up in an orphanage and is a high school graduate. She works as a janitor for Child Protective Services in Brasov. Her husband is a bus driver. Their income is very modest but they are trying to take very good care of their son. The family lives in a small one bedroom apartment.
After paying rent, utilities, and kindergarten fees, there is a very small amount of money left for food, clothing, and medication for Mihai. The family needs help with living expenses and the cost of medication.
