Post-op cleft lip/palate
Listed: June 26, 2015
Ellis is a handsome, active, and conscientious boy who is 10 years old. He came to the orphanage as a baby, with a cleft lip and palate. Both have been repaired (2004 and 2006). Ellis’ speech is not always clear, although he works very hard to correct it. He is healthy. Ellis loves to go to school! He has such a thirst for knowledge and wants to learn all he can. Before his first day of school, his nanny asked him what he liked most. He replied, “The happiest thing is to have a new bag, new folder, and new pencil!” Ellis has expressed his desire to have a family of his own, and looks forward to a life in a foreign country. He is a good “big brother” to the little ones at the orphanage. He enjoys playing with his friends at the orphanage and at school, and is a good helper to the orphanage staff. Ellis needs a family.
*** Ellis has received a $10,000Older Child Grant! ***
