Update from 2014, when he was first listed: Blake just turned 4 years old! Since last summer he has been living with a foster family and this year he started kindergarten. Blake still needs daily help from his caregivers, but he is trying to do more for himself. Even though he is still a little delayed, he can go up and down the stairs all by himself and has good basic fine motor skills. Blake can understand what his foster family says to him but sometimes they cannot understand his words clearly. He enjoys playing with the other children. Blake is always energetic and tries to keep a ready smile for the day!
