7-year old Charlie Needs a Forever Family!
Charlie is a smiley, cute, and smart boy who loves to play with everybody and care for the younger children in the orphanage. He loves playing with everyone, whether they are friends or strangers.
Charlie was born with cerebral palsy, but has done very well at the orphanage.
- At 4-years, 9-months, he could sit on his own and play.
- At 5-years, he could crawl, draw pictures, help clean up his toys, eat on his own, and repeat words after the caretaker.
- At 5-1/2 years, he could use a caretaker to help him stand up, speak simple words, respond to simple commands, play with other children, and care for other children.
- At 6-years old, he could stand up on his own while holding onto the wall, browse through books, sit at the table, walk while embracing the wall, go to the bathroom alone, keep his balance, and help feed his friends.
Charlie's smile is so contagious! He is designated by the CCCWA as a Special Focus child and is from one of our agency’s orphanage partnerships. His file is now a shared file. A family at any stage of the process is eligible to review this file.
Any family wanting more information about Charlie can contact our China staff at WaitingChildren@awaa.org or call 800-429-3369. We would be happy to discuss details and how to begin the process to make Charlie your son!
