2011, Nov. 24th, FinnBoy, born November 2011
Congenital deformity of the right hand- 4 fingers; thumb missing; postoperative right hernia; right lower limb muscular tension.

Cute, friendly Finnigan was found when just a few months old. From his Oct. 2013 file: “Finnigan cannot talk but he can express his own need with the children words. For example, if he wants to drink water, he would yell at the mother and give a sign of drinking water. When he knows there are fruits in the refrigerator, he would point at it and yell at the mother. If he is full, he would shake the head and close the mouth. If he wants to watch TV, he would point at the TV and let the mother turn on TV. At present, Finnigan cannot walk independently. But he can support the floor with hands and move forward with the button. He moves very fast. At home, he likes to move around the room and observe the things in the curious eyes. When the foster mother fetches the clothes back to fold, he would imitate her to fold the clothes. He can distinguish the clothes correctly. At home, Finnigan likes to play with the young foster sister. He would cover the eyes of the foster sister to play hide-and-seek. They often giggle together. Finnigan likes to play outside. Finnigan is very generous. If there are some delicious foods or funny toys on the hands, he would share with little friends friendly. Although his hands are inconvenient, it does (not) affect him to hold or grasp some little objects. He can hold the peanut or grape with the index and middle fingers flexibly. He can imitate the adults to put on the clothes and shoes. But at present, he does not put on the clothes yet. Finnigan likes to imitate the father to read newspapers with the magnifying glass.”
