Handsome Enzo is an extroverted little boy who is well loved by his caretakers! He laughs out loud when other children play with him, but will cry loudly if someone grabs his toy. When people ask “Do you still know me?” he will respond with a huge smile. When his file was prepared at the age of three, he could stand up by holding the railing and could change his body position when he sat down. Enzo can imitate adults by blowing kisses and waving goodbye. He could walk everywhere if he holds onto an adult’s finger. Enzo likes playing with other children and likes colorful toys and toys that make sound. He can sway his body to the music. He can say “Mama, sister is here.” Enzo understands what his caretakers say to him and they all adore him. They say that he is small compared to his same-aged peers, but that he is active and strong. He is very outgoing and will open his arms happily to be held. Enzo has a good appetite and is said to be a steady sleeper. We’re hoping an update will come through for Enzo and that this cutie pie will soon have a family of his own!

Update Oct 2020: Enzo is generally healthy. With reminders, he can go to the toilet by himself. He is outgoing and gentle, and likes to talk with people. Little sweetheart is afraid of high pitch noise and bugs. Enzo has very good gross motor skills. He can run, jump and walk without help. He can fill in colors, connect dots with lines, and pick up tiny things. He sees a speech therapist, and his speech and cognition has been improving. He is attached to his caretakers and teachers. He knows to care for others. When he is afraid, give him hugs, he will calm down then. Enzo has good social skills. He stays with his little friends, and shares toys and food with them.

Enzo has a grant of $2000 with his current adoption agency.
