Boy, born July 2002
Jimmy is blind. Jimmy lived with his grandmother when he was little, but when she died he moved to his local orphanage. When he came to the specila foster home for the visually impaired, he was very sad. The first time he smiled was when he received training on how to use his cane. He was so excited to be able to walk by himself! No one had ever shown him that he could be independent. Jimmy has now run twice in the (mini) marathon and he often goes to the park to run 3-5km. Jimmy has progressed enough in his studies to be able to attend the School of the Blind. He has already been studying at this school for 2 years. He has piano lessons and he is very good, he loves being able to express himself through music. His caretakers are so proud of the way his personality and character have developed. Jimmy has worked hard at his piano lessons for the past few years and they have seen his confidence grow as he is impacted by the music he plays. He is very talented! When asked he said that he loves to draw for fun and his favorite food is noodles. For his favorite studies in school he likes anything that has to do with calculators and math. His favorite song is Edelweiss from the Sound of music. When asked what he wants to be when he grows up he adamantly answered a pianist! this talented boy is waiting for a family who can help him further his studies on both academics and music. Are you that music loving family?
