Boy, born July 2006
Spina bifida (post operative) and hydrocephalus (post operative)
Gaspar can stand with support, and is currently being trained to walk. His caregivers believe that there is a good chance for him to walk in the future, maybe just with crutches. He does not have bowel/bladder control, but knows when he goes. He is a sweet boy with a great personality. He is waiting for his forever family to help him be the best that he can be!
We spent a few hours with Gaspar and his foster family on our trip to adopt our daughter in August ‘13. He was *such* a sweet little boy! He had a gentle temperament and was very playful and engaging. His foster parents told us that he was quite patient with his foster sister (our daughter) and it was obvious that they had developed a close relationship. I know that he would be such a joy to his forever family! Our daughter also has spina bifida; if any family inquires about him, I would be happy to share our experience with him and life at home with a child with SB.
