We shudder to think how limited his life will be in his country with his special need if he doesn't
get adopted in time. Our staff decribed him as a very sweet boy. He is an outgoing boy who was not too shy when talking with us. He attends school outside the orphanage and is in the 2nd grade. Because he has grown up in the orphanage, the orphanage started him in school at a much later age than he would have started had he grown up in a family, but they report that he is quite smart.
He's a very good student and above average. His favorite subject is math. He enjoys playing when outside of school especially with a ball. He has many friends of all ages. He's very active and likes to run. He says that some of his favorite things are snacks and new clothes. He says that nothing makes him sad. When he sees an injustice for himself or others, he tells the teachers. His caregivers report that he is a hearty eater. He was very polite and always smiled at us when he saw us walk by during our visit at the institute.
Teddy is on the shared list, but there is a $4,200 Promise Child grant for eligible families if the family chooses to use WACAP for his adoption.
