Darwin Ramos – Halo Boys Frameable
Servant of God Darwin Ramos (1994-2012) was born into a slum in the Philippines. His mother worked cleaning laundry, and his father was an alcoholic. To raise money, Darwin would scavenge through garbage to try to find plastic to resell. While young, Darwin began to lose muscle due to a disease called Duchenne muscular dystrophy, causing him to be unable to stand or walk.
Street educators found Darwin begging and asked if he would like to spend his days in a home for children with disabilities, where he could recieve medical care. Darwin agreed and there he learned about Jesus and was baptized. Even in the midst of hospitalizations, he would say “thank you“ and “I love you“ to those he met. Darwin’s final days were spent praying and thanking those around him. Even when he couldn’t speak, he wrote notes of thanks and joy into a notebook for others to read.
-The text reads: “Darwin Ramos pray that I may share joy”
-The hefty coverstock paper is 5″x7″, artwork is a smaller piece
– Print comes with a description of her life history on the back
– The print is sold unframed, but, I made the paper a size that is super easy to find in most stores. I figured I’d save you the $ on shipping.
– Print will come in a plastic sleeve, with some protective cardboard, in a bubble mailer.
The “Halo Girls” set is my artistic celebration of the wonder and diversity of God’s call…to every one of us. <3
