May 15, 2018 Children Who Wait 2 Comments

Easton is a handsome little boy, born in October of 2011. Easton is deaf and was also born with a congenital heart defect. He had surgery for his heart defect in October of 2015 and at his follow-up appointment, it was noted that he was recovering well.

Easton’s gross and fine motor skills are on target. He understands basic concepts, recognizes colors, can trace objects, put together puzzles, and build with blocks.

Easton has good self-help skills and is toilet trained. He can wash his hands, feed himself, and brush his teeth independently. Easton is not a picky eater and really enjoys meat. He likes to dance, ride bikes, play games, go on the slide, and play with toys.

Easton is listed with Madison Adoption Associates and we hope a happy family who can teach Easton sign language sees him today… video of Easton can be found here!

There is a $500 agency grant for Easton’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.

Easton 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 Easton, please fill out a free PAP Waiting Child Review Form, which can be found here.

    Do we have to be certified foster parents to apply? How do we get a home study done? We live in IL. We are a fluent signing (ASL) family of 6, including a deaf ‘daughter’ of 26. What kind of fees/costs are involved in total?

      He is waiting in China. You don’t have to be certified foster parents but do need a home study. You can also contact Madison Adoption Associates directly and they can help you. PLEASE let them know you’d like more information. This little guy could so far in a signing family!
