Emergency Adoption Boy Aging Out in May 2010
WACAP is a non-profit adoption agency.
Families with a Dossier logged in (or able to before February 1st) whether or not they have a child assigned to them already may inquire if they are interested in adopting this particular older child please call 1-800-732-1887 ASAP or email FamilyFinders@wacap.org.
MX is an older boy age 13 who shared that, while living at the orphanage, he has seen mostly the younger children being adopted. He also shared that he has had many friends about his same age at the orphanage, but they have all either been adopted or have a family coming for them. He is sad to be left behind. Our staff said ” He is very good looking and seems like a normal teen age boy to me.”He is very motivated to be adopted and traveled from another orphanage as the only older child with all the younger children to come and meet us and discuss any adoption opportunities with us.
While appearing quite shy, he is engaging and had a very disarming smile. When asked about what he likes to do he responded that he loves to play basketball. His favorite player is “Kobe”. He is currently in the appropriate grade for his age in secondary school. His favorite subject is language. He speaks a little English. When asked what he wanted to be when he grows up, he said he wants to be a cartoonist because he loves to draw. He gave us pictures that he had drawn. He likes to watch cartoons on TV. When asked what he would do if money was not an object, he said he would have a house and a car. When asked how he reacts when he’s upset with someone, he wisely told us he doesn’t speak with them until he has calmed down. When asked to describe his ideal family, he said he would like a large family. Clearly a family is what this boy needs – before he turns 14 years old and becomes ineligible for international adoption and it is too late for him, forever. He still remembers what it was like to be part of a family and wants to be part of a family again soon.
There is a $4000 Promise Child grant for eligible families for this adoption and a possible additional fee reduction. Please contact a Family Finders Case Manager for more information. His ID is MX.0596.16737.01.
