Elijah’s mom, Tiffiney, believes Elijah reminds us that there is always someone to advocate for or someone who needs help. “He wants to live a life with the same opportunities as anyone else even if he has challenges. He has feelings just like anybody else, even if he cannot express them in the same ways as others” she says. “We may have obstacles, but I wouldn’t know what our life would be like without him!”
