Shiloh’s Helping Hands

Shiloh loves to help people everywhere he goes. He is very friendly with his classmates at school. It doesn’t matter how different they are. He knows everyone is a child of God! Shiloh has a condition called Down syndrome, and his closest friend, Kharl, can’t walk. Shiloh always helps Kharl with his wheelchair.

Shiloh is always willing to play with everyone, even children he doesn’t know yet. He loves to make new friends. One time when his family went to visit the Manila Philippines Temple, he noticed a girl in the waiting room who had no one to play with. He went over and began to play with her. He even shared his tablet with her.
