A little about Thomas

“I am an upbeat guy and a very likable person.

I am a product of the foster care system. I was adopted at the age of 11. Before that, I grew up in foster care in Pennsylvania and Florida. I have cerebral palsy, which weakens muscle coordination. I use a wheelchair most of the time, but can walk with supports.

Growing up in foster care is difficult. Being disabled, being different and growing up in foster care is very difficult. However, I am a survivor.” Thomas Moon
