|Name||:||Chong Wai Hou|
|Date of Birth||:||1/5/2008|
|Family Background||:||Single parent family, mother of age 50 working as a maid, has a brother who is studying at university.|
Wai Hou is a 13-year-old boy who has Down Syndrome. He has a strange habit which he drinks toilet water and his urine, hence, he can’t be left alone for a moment.
Wai Hao has never seen his father before, his father left them during his mother’s pregnancy and hence, his mother gave birth to the little one alone. Wai Hou’s mother did regular prenatal check-ups the fetus has no health issues.
Unfortunately, Wai Hou was born prematurely in the 8th month. When the baby boy was born, the doctor was hugging Wai Hao, asked the mother to look at her son and said: “This is your child, and he is possibly a down syndrome”.
Wai Hao was born in a government hospital, due to premature birth, he stay in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) baby incubator for 2 weeks. During this period, the doctor has done a proper check-up and determined that Wai Hao is down syndrome. The mother had a breakdown immediately.
The mother is at risk of losing her job as she has to take care of Wai Hao
Wai Hou has a brother, his mother is undertaking the role of both father and mother to raise the 2 kids independently. His brother is filial piety and a considerate child, he successfully enrolled in university under his mother’s guidance.
In order to support the brother’s education fees, the mother gets a housekeeping job where she can bring along Wai Hao while working at the employer’s home.
Due to Wai Hou’s intellectual disability, Wai Hao doesn’t know the dos and don’ts. He frequently creates rattling sound and throw things to get his mother’s attention when she is working.
The employer expresses her sympathy towards the mother by allowing her to bring along Wai Hou during working hours. However, Wai Hou’s abnormal behavior has caused a problematic issue at work and her mother is at risk of being dismissed from her duty.
While the mother is working, Wai Hao will frequently distract his mother, the mother will punish him sometimes just to hope that he can be quiet for a moment and not affect others. The mother will weep silently every time after punishing Wai Hou.
