MartyBoy, born in November 2001
Blood disorder

Marty is a loving, kind child who rarely becomes angry but when he does, he gets over it quickly. He was diagnosed with hydrocephalus when he was found as a baby. He was cured and now is considered to be healthy. Marty stated it perfectly when he exclaimed, “It is good luck to be healthy again.” Marty attends 4th grade where he is especially good with computers. He is of normal intelligence and a great helper to the teacher. He can say many words in English including: no, hello, thank you, goodbye. He also loves all sports, especially basketball. His favorite color is red.

Marty’s best friend is Gary. They are truly close and Marty said his greatest dream would be for them to be adopted together! Marty is not opposed to a large family. He desperately wants to have a forever family. He also commented, “but if you can’t find me a family it will be OK because in the future I will be able to help other children find forever homes.”  Now who wouldn’t love to have a son with such a sweet, caring and positive attitude?

If a family adopted Marty and Gary together, the orphanage would reduce orphanage donations by half!

Marty has a $2,000 Special Focus grant from the agency.


$32.00 has been donated towards the cost of my adoption!

Your gift will serve ALL of the children, as 10% of each Waiting Child Donation is shared with our Voice of Hope fund, as well!
