In early 2009, LeVan Williams was living the bachelor’s dream. He was a young, successful, pharmaceutical salesman, making a good salary and living in his posh Bronzeville condo. He holds several degrees, including biochemistry, technology and a master’s degree in business administration — he was even accepted to medical school.
Life was good, but he felt something was missing. He knew he wanted to help his community. Why not adopt a kid in need? That was Williams’ plan — to take in a young boy who needed positive leadership; someone he could mold and give a good life to, the way he had a good life. He got more than he bargained for — six children.
