Boy, 8 years old
Married couples only, older parents welcome, large families welcome, travel required.
Rowan is an easy going, able, kind hearted, intelligent little boy who would love to be adopted. He has some notable items on his medical but after a month long visit on a hosting program in the US, he was evaluated and found not to have anything more than a lazy eye that required glasses and a very mild curviture which requires no surgical intervention, as it was so minor it only causes mild aches. Rowans skull plates fused normally, and there is no physcial sign of hydrocephalus. The neurosurgeon did recommend he stay away from full contact sports such as football and rugby just to be cautionary, though he felt he was developing normally and was generally healthy. An opthomologist agreed he responded age appropriate to his exam, and needed a perscription which would help with his mild lazy eyes but saw no other issues. Rowan makes excellent eye contact, gives hugs when appropriate (truly heart warming hugs where you can feel the love) and is shy around strangers. He shows no unusual physchological behaviors and does very well with new experiences. Rowan is an EXCELLENT traveler, rolling his own bag, hopping on and off the escalator with ease and sitting through a flight with music or video. Rowan does very well physically-rides a tricycle, runs backwards and forwards, skips, jumps, climbs all playground equipement, swings (pumps himself), rides a childs 4 wheeler, etc. He does well on mental tasks as well, he matches like items, reads and writes, does up to 48 piece puzzels, colors in the lines and catches onto age level games quickly such as Candyland. He is at a normal height and weight for his age. He really enjoys pop music and can sing rather well. Rowan plays well with all children but is very guarded around boys his age. After time he warmed up to a father figure in the house and was quickly very trusting and helpful to all females in the immediate family. Any family that pursuses this child should know that it will take him a while to trust and play without his guard on around boys near his age. He sometimes hoards his toys or treats around boys, but this is not un-typical as he is growing up in an orphanage and will subside over time. He responds best to gentle but firm redirection, more stern discipline causes pouting as he really feels he is in really big trouble and is not sure you will include him again so families should be kind, fun and easy going. He is truly a wonderful boy that is clearly mis-labeled and is a diamond waiting to be found!! Host family is willing to discuss this child with homestudy approved seriously interested families. Please move quickly so he doesn’t have to wait any longer! Many photos and video available.
$145.50 is available towards the cost of my adoption!
