"I know they are sick. I know they are going to die." Mohamed Bzeek has spent the past twenty years caring for terminally ill foster children, taking them to doctors' visits, tending to special needs, celebrating birthdays, and sacrificing sleep. When the Los Angeles county Department of Children and Family Services has a child who is not going to make it, he's the man they call. No one else will take them. But Bzeek doesn't just care for them; he loves them. Fearlessly. With all his heart. Knowing it will end in pain and loss. Of his current foster child, he says, "I know she can't hear, can't see, but I always talk to her. I'm always holding her, playing with her ... She has feelings. She has a soul. She's a human being." For Bzeek, these aren't just words; they're his life.
