Eddie came to be an Orangewood child at the age of two as a result of his mother’s death. He resided in six different foster homes before finding a loving and stable foster family at age 15. He personally initiated placement with his foster family and has continued to have a close relationship with them. With financial help from a Children’s Trust Fund scholarship, Eddie earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Physical Education and Business. He maintained a 2.5 GPA and was very involved in school activities while holding a part-time job. Eddie’s plans for the future are to obtain a job teaching and coaching sports.
