Boy, Age: 13
meningocele and tethered spinal cord (post-surgery), Achilles tendon surgery corrected
Listed: Aug 2015
Yanni was born with a meningocele and tethered spinal cord and was abandoned when he was just two days old. Two weeks later, he had surgery to correct his meningocele and spinal cord and is doing well. Yanni also had surgery on his Achilles tendon. He now walks and runs, and even marched like a soldier when we visited his orphanage in late June. Yanni is potty trained but sometimes needs reminders when he’s tired. He counts to ten, knows his colors, and plays well with his foster mom’s grandson. Can he be your son?
