waiting child highlight: Judah urgent medical need

August 30, 2014 by nohandsbutours advocating, Children Who Wait 1 Comments

Judah, born October 2010, is a quiet child who is afraid of strangers, and likes to play with those he knows. He was found at two years old, he was thin, weak and could walk on his own. Once he got used to the new environment he could say many words, especially when he was happy. He likes to stand on his bed to entertain himself, although he can’t climb due to his health, and gets tired after walking a short distance. He can point out his body parts, scribble with a pen, and wipe his hands and mouth on a towel. He can understand instructions from adults, and will help pick up trash on the ground when asked. Judah is diagnosed with thalassemia, an update is needed to verify his transfusion status.

    I’d love yo adopt him but I am in Spain. Don’t think it would be possible for me to do it cause in here you can’t adopt if you are a Thal major as I am.
