Ten year old Finley is a healthy, quiet, introverted boy who spent his first several years in another institute before coming to his current orphanage in August 2012. Despite this big transition, he is doing very well! He is close to his caretaker and roommates, and likes playing with the other children and watching TV. He is attending school at the orphanage, and does well in class, obeying the rules and listening carefully. He is a helpful boy who will often assist the teacher by sweeping the floor or cleaning the blackboard. The orphanage feels that because he didn’t have early education, his performance is just average and he learns a little slower than his peers. However, they also feel that his language and writing are excellent! He can do simple math, and has even learned some basic greetings and names of fruits in English. His motor skills are all normal; he can run and use the stairs, pick up small objects with chopsticks, and draw geometric figures. He can sing songs, and recite Tang Dynasty poetry, though his pronunciation isn’t always proper. He can do all his daily care tasks of dressing, eating, and bathing, but this little boy still longs to be adopted. He hopes he can have a caring family!
Finley had a small hemangioma or lipoma on the back of his neck, but it receded without treatment. He is now a healthy little boy whose greatest need is for his family to find him.
Finley is currently on WACAP’s designated list. There is a $4000 grant available for families who qualify to assist with this adoption. Contact the advocacy team for more information on beginning the adoption journey.
