Eleven-year-old Brian is extroverted, optimistic, and sensible. He gets along well with the other kids in his orphanage. His nannies report that Brian “likes to play games, watch cartoons and study with other children happily. He gets along well with aunts, every time when he meets aunt the child will be happy to run to cuddle aunts, and he will hand aunts to playing games with him.”
Brian was born with hemifacial microsomia and cleft palate. The nannies further report that “although the child can not speak clearly, he is very careful and he will try his best to pronounce. His favorite: he can play outdoor activity and games with other children, to know all kinds of plants. When he finds nice plants he will be curious and observe carefully, and he will point them out to aunt and other children.” Brian’s favorite food is a nice hamburger.
HERE’S A RECENT MESSAGE FROM A CHI MOM: As a mom who adopted a child with hemifacial Microsomia I have to say that it is something easily dealt with in the States. It is considered a genetic defect and is covered by the insurance fully. It can take a couple of surgeries but the results are outstanding! Please consider this child. He seems bright and deserves a bright future.
The nannies have talked with Brian extensively regarding international adoption. Brian is all for it and is hoping to meet his forever family soon!
