Samson is a handsome and clever boy, born deaf in August of 2009. In September of 2013, Samson had cochlear implant surgery. He is currently studying at a cochlear language training school and is performing well. His teachers praise his fast progress.
Though it took him a while to adjust to the school and being away from those he knew, Samson did adjust and loves it there now. He gets along well with his classmates and teachers. Everyone likes him. Samson is said to be outgoing and active. He enjoys drawing in a special book he has and loves to show others his drawings.
Samson is a happy boy who hopes that he will have a family, with a dad, a mom, and siblings. Whenever another child is adopted, he is inspired and full of admiration for that child. He often breaks down though later and asks the nanny in the orphanage to cuddle him, as he calls them ‘mom’ while he waits for his own mother.
Samson is waiting for it to be his turn. Could your family be Samson’s forever?
