Henry was born March of 2014 and his special need is listed as limb difference (strephenopodia or clubbing of both feet for which he recently received surgery).

Henry is the most precious little mouse you are likely to see. You might squeal when you spot him but it would be with delight. Henry is 3 years old, born 3/2014. He likes to play with his caregiver on the phone and make videos using different filters. Henry had surgery on his clubbed feet and is currently recovering. He currently wears boots and a bar to help straighten his feet. He is a pre-reader and loves picture books. The caregivers are trying to help him develop his talents in math!

The caregivers write, “He is a very active and lovely child. The aunties love him very much. In his crib he can kick his feet about, his hands can hold toys, but when he is nearly 1 year old, he can not roll over, can not sit. By the rehabilitation training of therapist for half year, now the child can roll over, can sit; can he can crawl quickly. He can ride the toy sheep to play for a while. He does not cry or shout, he is very obedient and cute. Generally the child also likes to take books with pictures, he is a child who likes to read picture books. Generally aunts will teach him to count. Now the child can count 1 and 2. We hope he can be a mathematics talent in the future.” Dated September 2016
