Boy, born June 1998
Ianto only has until age 16 to be adopted! He’ll be 15 this summer, so that doesn’t give him very much time — please help find his family!
Ianto so badly wants to have a forever family! That is on his brain non-stop it is clear as day. He himself has even said he does not fit in at the boarding school and just wants to have the love of a family. He is scared and uncomfortable at the school, basically out of his element and is just trying to fit in enough to do what he has to do to survive and be accepted but with the hopes of a family coming for him. He so badly longs for a family that when our mission team left he was in such emotional tears he could almost not breathe. The fears and loss of hope came tumbling back in his mind as we pulled away. It was written all over his face.
He has great eye contact and is affectionate. He has some speech slurs but not significant. He can speak clearly and gets caught up on a word every now and then especially when nervous. If he could change one thing is would be to not have friends that smoke and drink. Almost all the kids in his specific school do this so it is rare to find a friend that is not, sadly. His favorite foods are dumplings, meat, apples, salads….really everything. The boy likes food! When our team took him out for dinner he wanted to look his very best so he put on his class school suit. It was adorable!
He likes hip-hop music and enjoys sports. When asked what if your parents do not approve of your hip-hop music what would you do, he responded with then I won’t listen to it anymore. Some of his favorite sports are Futbul (soccer), football, basketball, running, running, ping pong , swimming, boxing and volleyball. He enjoys art, knitting, beading, clay art and dancing. If he could describe himself he would say he is a little shy, funny and talkative and I would have to agree. If he had a choice he would like the atmosphere around him to be sometimes quiet and calm and sometimes busy. He can handle both. When asked if he would rather be alone or with friends or a little of both he said he would rather be with family. He would prefer to follow verse a lead. He said he enjoys playing on the computer but more then 20 minutes hurts his eyes so he does not spend much time on one. He would love to become a cook and learn how to make desserts. If he could learn to do something it would be to learn a trade that he could make money at in order to care and help the kids in orphanages. If he had three wishes it would be to have a family, fly to the US and never return to an orphanage. If he could be like anyone in the world he would be like himself. He is happy with how God made him. He has visited Greece at a camp and liked it there but said it was very hot. He would love to come to America and learn English, help his parents and swim. If he could choose a family with siblings he said he would like to be the middle child. If he could not then the oldest is ok. He loves cats and dogs.
This young man is so eagerly waiting for a forever family.
$167.00 is available towards the cost of my adoption!
