Waiting to be Chosen: Oakley

May 14, 2018 Children Who Wait 0 Comments

Oakley, born in October of 2013, is the cutest little boy.

Reported to be very happy and smart, Oakley is in the wonderful care of China Little Flower. He has no intellectual or physical disabilities.

Oakley likes cartoons, musical toys, singing, dancing, and being cuddled. He likes eating chicken and noodles, but doesn’t like sweets. Described as a charmer, he can be shy with strangers, but once he warms up he loves to be the center of attention and can be quite the performer.

Oakley was born with exstrophy of his bladder. Oakley’s medical needs don’t slow him down though! He runs, jumps, skips, and climbs stairs. He speaks in full sentences, can converse with adults, and likes to ask questions.

Oakley had an operation in August of 2016 and because of complications, he had another procedure in September of 2016. He currently needs an ostomy bag for urine and may need more procedures in the future. Oakley is listed with Madison Adoption Associates and we can’t wait to see who his family will be!

There is a $1,500 agency grant for Oakley’s adoption with Madison Adoption Associates. Other grants may be available based on the adoptive family’s circumstances. Agency grants are awarded as agency fee reductions. MAA also partners with the Brittany’s Hope Foundation for matching grants, which are given out twice a year (January and July) and to families that are officially matched with a child.

Oakley needs a family with an approved home study to be able to hold his file or move forward with adopting him. If you have an approved home study or a home study in process and are interested in adopting Oakley, please fill out a free PAP Waiting Child Review Form.
