Heartwarming: Eric Schweig
  • He devotes his time to helping inner-city youth as a full time resource assistant. Jobs and apartments are offered to homeless teen in desperate need and genuine interest to turn their luck. Given his history, this is probably his most treasured project.
  • In 1999, at the Vancouver Inner City Foster Care Conference, Eric Schweig delivered a heartfelt testimony about his painful experience of adoption and abuse: "For years my adoptive parents beat me bloody on a regular basis. I've been trapped in rooms naked and beaten with belt buckles, hockey sticks, extension cords, and once with a horsewhip. I eventually grew tired of living in a prison without walls and ran away when I was 16. What transpired between then and now has been a roller coaster of alcohol, drugs, violence, failed relationships, despair and confusion. Who am I? Where do I come from? Where is my family? Where do I belong? When life's mystery has been shattered by strangers watching over you, a lot of these questions are lost."
