Elias turned 3 in June but is still very much a baby in his development. He has significant cerebral palsy and seizures. He needs total care. He is fed through an NG tube but we hope he will be getting a g-tube soon. Elias is in an excellent orphanage where he receives loving care from his caregivers. He receives physical therapy and is adored by the staff. He has a hard time tracking with his eyes but when he does get a chance to focus on you or a toy he lights up with a huge smile! He loves to be held, talked to and played with. He cries when you put him down.
The agency has additional pictures and video available.
- His orphanage will require a Christian family who can provide a letter of recommendation from their pastor. Interested families will need to send a letter of introduction to the orphanage and have their homestudy approved by the orphanage social worker before being able to be matched.
- Families with six or less children at home preferred but we can inquire about an exception
- Couples must be married at least 1 year and one parent at least 21 years older than the child being adopted
- One parent over 25 years old.
