Seymour has gray eyes and brown hair. The boy is quick-tempered, active, joyful, enjoys playing with Lego and drawing, has speech delay. When he was placed in a foster family, he sometimes used to fell down on the ground and he had poor behavior. Currently his behavior has seriously improved, the boy no longer fells down on the ground and does not cry. The boy needs undivided attention, it is recommended for him to be the only child in the family. When he is together with the foster mother he is obedient, wants all of her attention and love to be focused on him. Previously child was aggressive towards other children (younger half-brother and the girl in the foster family) he hit and bite them. Currently he gets along very well with particular girl. The boy did not develop sibling relationship with his younger half-brother. There were suspicions on possible hearing problems, but this information is false, the foster mother informs that the boy hears better than her, actually he hears very well. He has nightmares in the night, the boy might start crying without even being awake, then the foster mother goes to him, puts her arm on him and the boy calms down. The boy has a language delay – says words, but does not form sentences. He has good language comprehension, understands everything. Attends speech therapist. Attends mainstream kindergarten and behaves well there, follows the taught material, educators have no objections to his work. The boy is willing to help doing different chores, goes to a potty, has no enuresis problems. Adoptive parents should take into account that the boy slowly opens to others, but once the boy has accepted person, then it is for real and lastingly – if he loves, then loves to his full potential. If, for example, the boy does not get the toy he wants, then he can fall down and scream, get hysterical, but with a little cuddling he gets calm. The boy is bland and friendly with others. Comparing to what the boy used to be when placed in the foster family, he bit and would not listen adults, but now the boy has greatly progressed in all areas. The physician of the boy informs – that currently it is difficult to predict further development of the child in the future, possibly, by investing lots of efforts and love to improve the development of the child, there would not be any issues. The boy knows how to put puzzles on a tablet, he likes putting also ordinary puzzles, foster parents encourages the boy to draw to develop his small motor skills. The boy is very reasonable, recognizes digit 1, but if sees, for example, number 20, then knows that it is much more. Knows how does the cat, dog and cow says.
