I’m Faizan’s mother.
Before I write anything here, the fact is that when the heart is full, words are few. But I will take this opportunity to thank Faizan’s Principal and teachers for their love and support.
God has has been very kind to my family and me.
Faizan’s success would not be possible otherwise.
