Boy, born January 2001
microcephaly, hydrocephaly, cognitive delays, deficiency anemia, oligotrophy
He is a very funny boy! Previously, the caretakers thought he was a mean boy, but moving to a smaller group helped him, significantly. He has a speech delay; he often says just the first syllable of each word, but in a few days you can understand much of what he is saying. Orion likes to help.
From someone who met him in 2012:
Oh my goodness, what a live wire! He ran to me with that massive, heartwarming smile, and beckoned me to follow him into the classroom that’s part of his small home. He ran so excited to get his books and was so proud of how he is learning to write. Orion is such a clever capable boy and so full of life. He played with us and screamed with laughter and was just so lovely. I cannot even say how wonderful he would be in a real home…he would be an amazing son. You simply cannot help but love mischevious, wonderful, funny, amazing Orion!
