Todd can sit independently. He talks and easily carries on conversations with adults. His intellectual development is right at the “normal” level on testing. He has a caregiver that works 1:1 with him daily.
Families who have visited the orphanage where he lives report that he is a very smart and friendly little boy. He is able to carry on a conversation and answer questions appropriately and plays hand held video games.
From a family who visited with him in September 2013: ” We had a chance to meet this little boy at our childrens’ orphanage last week. He is a very smart and vibrant little boy. My heart breaks at the thought that if he is not adopted, he will be sent to an institution to live out his days. This boy needs a mom and dad to care for him and tell him he is loved and valued. I just know his family is out there! “

Because we only have this child’s file for a short time, he will not be able to receive donations until a family is found for him.
