Leo is a bright handsome boy and his development is on par with his peers. In his report from when he was five he was doing everything any child that age would do, knew his colors, could tell stories, could explain how things work, had learned to count and could do addition and subtraction. He’s described as outgoing and actively involved in running, jumping and climbing with the others in their outdoors games. Sometimes he’s selected to be the teacher’s helper in his class at school, and he’s well-liked by the aunties at the institution and by his classmates. Indoors, he likes to chill with his buddies watching cartoons. He’s been diagnosed with a spinal condition but hasn’t had surgery and doesn’t take medication for it, although it needs some management. It’s reported that he especially enjoys being helpful to others.
Boy, born November 2012
Cleft lip; Congenital heart defect
Brayden, born November 2012, is a quiet little boy, but he loves listening to music! You can hear him laugh out loud, especially when playing with toys that make sound. He is a good sleeper, and has begun to have other food with his milk at meal times. As of September 2013, he could raise his head while lying on his stomach and roll over on his own. He could pick up small objects like beans, reach for toys beyond his grasp, and pass a toy from one hand to the other. He would also turn when his name was called, and express “no”. He was able to differentiate between strangers and caretakers, and react appropriately to adults’ facial expressions. Brayden was born with a cleft lip on one side, but no cleft palate, and a heart condition. He also has one eyelid that droops. In a recent update, Brayden has grown a few centimeters in the last year, but has lost weight. He is in need of a family as soon as possible so that he can get the medical care he needs so that he can gain weight and thrive.
