My son Peter was cared for by Sjany de Groot for one whole year before I adopted him at 18 months.
Peter is now 33 years old. If it were not for the care and love from Sjany and family, I doubt Peter would have survived. The de Groot home is very loving, caring and professional.
Many of the children Sjany cares for don’t make it because of their severe disabilities. Yet she loves them and cares for them until the end. Maybe if the “powers that be” were to visit the de Groot home, they would come to appreciate what so few people in this world can do: caring for our disabled children with their whole heart.
