When a newborn baby opens their eyes, usually the first face they’ll see is their mother’s hugging them closely and smiling down. The baby is completely helpless to her, and dependent on her. Babies are then usually taken home to loving families where they can grow up with care and be given the opportunities to become the best adult they possibly could. That’s the hope anyway.
That’s not the case for all babies however, and it definitely wasn’t for Freddie Figgers who at just 2 days old was throw out with the rest of the trash. Yet somehow at 32, he managed to become a multi-millioaire and CEO, all because of love. Here’s how.
Throw Out Like Trash As A Baby
Freddie was born in Quincy, Florida but wasn’t alive for a whole week on this earth before his mother decided that she wanted nothing to do with him and rather than look for care for him, just abandoned him in a dumpster.
The newborn baby was then found all alone on the street by a passerby. Believing the baby to be in distress, they called the police and the baby was hospitalized with minor injuries for two days before being placed in a foster home. Looking back Freddie recalls: “My mother threw me away just like day to day trash,” he says “I’m not even supposed to be here.”
