Meet Michael


This sweet little guy was born January of 2009. His file and his picture are several years old. A family or single woman pursuing him could easily request an update. His special need is deformity of the upper limbs and VSD. He has waited a long time for a family to come forward for him. A girl with this special need would more than likely already have a family. A family is needed to step forward and change the life of this sweet four year old. Could that family be yours?
