From a family who knows him:
Preston is a very special boy who has already impacted many people in his short life. He lived with his birth family for his first four years until they felt they could not care for him anymore and put him in the baby house orphanage. In 2016 he was transferred from the baby house to an institution on the verge of death. Volunteers went to the institution in the night to help him and after many phone calls to authorities at the very top of the country’s government he was sent to a hospital instead of being left to die. That miraculous night started a train of events that brought Preston to the forefront of his country’s policies and procedures surrounding orphan care. Many people all over the country were outraged by his plight, and at the same time moved by his sweet spirit and beautiful smile.

Preston is a special case in that he is available for international adoption, but he lives with a local foster family. The foster family adore Preston and are are bonded to him. Although it breaks their hearts to release him, they know he needs to be adopted in order to live up to his full potential.

His list of diagnoses is daunting, but that list does not well represent the boy that we know so well. The Preston we know is a bright, social child that loves cars, trucks, sweets and animals and is deeply attached to his foster family. He loves to play like other boys, but his body just won’t cooperate, so he needs a lot of assistance in daily life. He doesn’t walk, but REALLY wants to. He understands everything that is said to him and wants to talk so bad! He tries to say some words, but is difficult to understand.

Preston will bring amazing joy to an adoptive family. He has already brought those who know him much joy and life. He is one loved boy!
