Find My Family: Siam

December 15, 2018 Children Who Wait 0 Comments

Siam is a sweet little boy, born in March of 2015, with an engaging personality and a cute toothy smile. Siam was under the care of Show Hope, but unfortunately had to return to his orphanage in December of 2017.

Siam was very close to his friends at Maria’s Big House of Hope and adored by his caretakers. They said that he had a fun and happy personality. Siam was known to love parties to celebrate the various Chinese holidays, where he enjoyed snacking and coloring with his friends. Siam loved to run around and have his nannies chase after him.

His caretakers noted his resilience and how much he had overcome to be able to run and play. In preschool, Siam was the “class clown.” He would sometimes sing loudly in class. The other children would join in and they would all break out in giggles.

Siam is sometimes hesitant to try new things, but his caretakers were always proud of how brave he would be to try them anyways. One day, Siam went to McDonald’s. He was unsure of the french fries at first, but after his first bite he discovered that he loved them! He was also a little apprehensive about swimming, but bravely gave it a try and ended up having such a fun time!

Siam is missed dearly. It is the hope of everyone at Maria’s Big House of Hope that he find his forever family very soon so he doesn’t have to stay in the orphanage any longer than necessary.

Siam was diagnosed as having eversion of both feet, genital malformation, and developmental delays. He had made huge progress while at Maria’s. We’re hoping to get an update to see how he’s doing now that he’s been back at the orphanage almost a year.

Numerous posts are dedicated to Siam at Show Hope – you can read much more about him there.

There is a $500 agency grant for Siam’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.

Siam needs a family with an approved home study to be able to move forward with adopting him. If you have an approved home study or a home study in process and are interested in adopting Siam, please fill out a free PAP Waiting Child Review Form, which can be found here.
