This precious little boy is still waiting for his forever family to find him!
Let me introduce you to Kristopher!! (not his real name, but it's close! Real names are not used to protect the children) I have met this little cutie several times as he was Christy's roommate from their earliest moments! He and Christy are very close in age, but very different in abilities. I have been told that he loved to try to get her to play with him, but she mostly ignore him. Sounds like the typical guy/girl relationship, right?
So Kristopher is in a very good group home. He is cared for by loving caretakers and has regular therapy. He is in a home with 9 other children with special needs. The time he spends in this group home will be great preparation for him going to his forever family, just as it did for Christy. He is allowed to roam around the home in his walker or sit in a bouncy seat. He also gets to interact with the other children in the home, aging from his age up to around 16 years of age when I was there. The other children all have special needs of some sort. The director of the orphanage has such a sweet heart for these children and just loves to see them get adopted. I found out recently that she even purchased a little kiddy pool last summer for the kids to enjoy, but only Christy truly loved it! These children also get to go outside everyday that it's nice enough and there is a little playground with a swing and a slide as well as a little walking area too. This is not the norm for children from this county, so he is blessed beyond measure to be here, but a forever family would be so much better for him! And once he's adopted another child can be saved out of the orphanages there where they are left in their cribs all day!
Kristopher has a page on Reece's Rainbow, but until he has a family committed to him, they can't accept donations according to the way things are done for orphans in this country.

Anyway, this little guy would thrive in a loving home and I'm on a mission to find that home! His file is only available for a short time and then it goes back in the "drawer." PLEASE, if you blog or do social media, SHARE, SHARE, SHARE!

He's grown so much and is so much happier!
