Actually, he did not have a hard life.
He does not even remember the first 5 years of his life - the "hardest" part
:woot: :woot: :o What!?!

Has it occurred to you that he doesn't remember because it was too traumatic?
Look up "repressed memories."
In the end, however, the wisdom of preparing for the worst has its limits when — all things considered — it keeps us from doing what’s best.

"repressed memories."? Come on now!
His time in Ghana (all the first 5 years of life) was never traumatic. His parents' time in Liberia was
At 5, he had a roof over his head and food to eat.
There were NO dead bodies in the streets, killings, beatings, mutilations or any traumatic experience in the camp.
Ghana was and still is the most peaceful country in West Africa
