Keane, born June of 2011, is a smart boy with bright eyes and the sweetest, shy smile.
Keane was born with meningocele and hydrocephalus. He has had surgery to treat both. A recent update, which included this photo (below) and this video, reported that he is very respectful to adults in his life and that he is independent with his self-care. His caretakers say that he is not a picky eater and that he likes talking with other people.
Keane has normal motor development. He can run, jump, go up and down stairs, and play sports. He participates in outdoor activities daily. He attends kindergarten in a public school setting.
Keane has normal communication and language skills. He is very helpful at school and with his caretakers, often helping them to do things he can do. He helps on his own initiative even!
Keane sounds like an amazing little boy who would do so well in a forever family!

There is a $500 agency grant with Madison Adoption Associates for Keane’s adoption. 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.
Keane 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 Keane, please fill out a free PAP Waiting Child Review Form, which can be found here.
