Boy, born September 2006
Mental delays, dysontogenetic cardiopathy, convergent squint, umbilical hernia.
Braden lived with his mother until her death before entering the orphanage last year (2011). You can tell he was LOVED and taken care for. He is doing quite well compared to many of the other children which is attributed to being in a family versus institution. Who knows how much he could improve with the love of a family! He also has a caregiver he has attached to.
He is a mobile child and very active. He tries to walk himself. He understand what most people are talking about but he can’t talk in sentences. He can pronounce some words. He can’t service himself, need assistance to eat. He tries to hold a spoon in his hands. He recognizes his caregivers and can follow simple instructions. These are all GOOD things!
Update June 2013:
Braden is a very sweet little guy. He is very controlled in his movement and behavior. He understands what you say to him and he responds to directions. He comes highly recommended for adoption by his orphanage as they have seen much progress and potential for him.
