Family together at a park

“I was afraid that I’d never get to hug him the way a father hugs a son. Now we’re all about ‘family hug’.”

Life was just getting started for newlyweds Bryan and Brianna. They were settling comfortably into their new routines as a married couple when they were asked to take their one year old nephew, Cassius, into their home. When Cassius joined the family it quickly became clear that he needed support for his social-emotional skills. He didn’t know how to sit down and play, he spent most of his time alone, and wouldn’t use words during his school day. “He wouldn’t go near anybody.” Through support from HopeSparks, Cassius slowly started to let his guard down and open up to other children at school. He received Early Childhood Intervention services to build his play skills and to strengthen his relationship with Bryan and Brianna. Over time, he built trust with them and was able to accept and offer affection freely.
