Daniel update 2016DanielBoy, age 7
Epilepsy, cognitive delays

Listed: July 29, 2016

Daniel is 7 years old and living with a foster family right now. He has epilepsy and was born very premature, so has additional developmental delays. Otherwise, he is physically healthy. Daniel is described as a welcoming and upbeat child, who is outgoing. He enjoys playing with other children and can sometimes be bossy towards them. At times, Daniel prefers to play by himself. He wants to be adopted, and does not present any serious behavioral difficulties for his foster parents.

Daniel is able to feed himself and help around the house with chores like setting the table. He is potty trained and is reported to sleep well. Daniel understands what is said to him, and can communicate in full sentences; however, he does have a speech defect that makes it sometimes difficult to understand what he is saying. He has been diagnosed with a moderate mental delay. Daniel will begin school in the fall, which should give his foster family a better idea of his ability to learn in a school environment.

Because we only have this child’s file for a short time, he will not be able to receive donations until a family is found for him.
