Oh, Bobby is growing up so fast….but alone BOBBY NEEDS OUT! Watch a short video here: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10151205374969862
Diagnosis: cerebral palsy, mental delay, secondary cardiopathy, was born with partial optic atrophy of both eyes, bronchopulmonary dysplasia. Unable to walk.
We have had several successful adoptions from this institution, and this region often waives the 10 day waiting period. Married couples only, no family size or parent age restrictions. Families should be HS approved (or nearly so) prior to committing for Bobby.
From a missionary who visited with him in September 2012: “Today I was in our local central hospital. Bobby is there now, because he has anemia. At the orphanage he eats just semolina porridge, no wonder that he has problems with his blood. The nurse, who spent 8 days with him, says, that she tried to give him other food too. But firstly he didn’t want to have something other, just his white porrige. She put some rice in his porrigde and he tried to throw it away with the napkin. But in a few days the nurse put other kinds of porridge in his milk and he can eat it, just she needs much time to feed him. She also told me, that he still needs attention and still tries to tear off the catheter from his arm”
From a missionary who visited with him in March 2012: Bobby was simply beautiful! Quieter than the other children who became quite intense trying to get attention, Bobby sat back and watched. His eyes that are most striking…they are like dark brown pools and theyare very knowing. I pulled him into my lap and our eyes connected, there is real potential within his eyes. He smiled, i just wanted to carry him out…this gentle soul with the slow curving smile…happy to be pulled into my lap and rocked and cuddled and spoken to in a language that he couldn’t understand. I loved him…he would be a wonderful son for somebody! He couldn’t walk at all but moved himself around independently on his knees. His face was a yellowish color that was alarming and may possibly hint at other issues. He really needs to find a family soon.
$4668.99 is available towards the cost of my adoption!
