todd-2015Boy, Born 2007
Diagnosis: hydrocephalus (shunt has been installed), spina bifida aperta, agenesis of the left kidney, fragile bones and strabismus
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.Todd 2010 (1)
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! “
Update, 2015:
He has so much character that he impresses greatly anyone who meets him. He acquires some new skills over time but as he gets older, his motivation for developing further is more and more dependent on the attention he gets from adults. He understands that some children get adopted and thus get a family. Whenever he happens to meet an adoptive family visiting a child in his orphanage, he tells them he would like to have a family, too. Growing up, he feels both the lack of a family and the need for one more and more heavily.
