He and his brother were abandoned by their parents. Seventeen year old Emmanuel was found in a shoe box. Eighteen year old Ahmed in an orphanage. Both boys were born in Iraq. They are said to be victims of chemical warfare. Both have limb deficiencies. Both are extremely talented. Emmanuel made it to the top 12 on Australia’s X-Factor. His brother Ahmed is a champion swimmer. Just when times seem impossible to handle, an inspiration like these two young men make a person thankful for what they have. Kudo’s, cheers and whatever else go out to their adopted mother Moria Kelly for her kind heart and ability to take something tragic and turn it into something wonderful.
