Anthony is a happy 10-year-old boy who spreads joy wherever he goes! He has a love for any kind of music, but his favorite song is “You Are My Sunshine.” The truth is that Anthony is a ray of sunshine in the lives of those around him. Anthony gets so excited when his caretakers sing to him. It is a blessing to see the delight on his face!

Although he does require some assistance with daily tasks, Anthony is strong and determined. Anthony’s caregivers believe that with continued therapy, he will be able to do many more things on his own. He is learning through a sensory-based curriculum at school. His teachers report that he is making great progress on his communication skills and it is evident that Anthony will continue to improve in all of his abilities with the extra love and care of a forever family. Could you give Anthony all the love he deserves to help him thrive in life?

Update Feb 2021:  Anthony has been living at the children’s home since he was a year old. He is a smart and caring boy. Access to quality medical care to assess the severity of his disabilities would be extremely beneficial. Anthony does require support with daily cares and accessing education. However, the growth he has experienced at the children’s home has been nothing short of miraculous. Anthony loves music and physical touch. Although he uses a wheelchair his favorite place to be is on the floor; where he can move around and explore his environment. His smile brightens even the darkest of days and his tenacity and determination are inspiring to all. The best days are ones where Anthony is laughing out loud. Anthony longs to be with a family who will love him for who he is. He would bring unending joy to them and the growth he experiencing would increase 10-fold in the care of a forever family.
