Advocate Today: 11-Year Old “Paul”

Paul 2
Paul was first introduced to our Blog and Waiting Child list back in April. He continues to wait for a forever family.

Paul is an energetic boy. His caretakers say that he is clever and likes playing games. Paul has a vision impairment. His file states that during his medical exam, he did not respond to objects in front of him and they diagnosed him as blind. Paul lives in a foster family and attended Half the Sky’s education program beginning May 2008.

He really enjoys attending a school for blind children and his foster mother explains that he is very dedicated to being independent despite his vision impairment. He likes to wash himself, dress himself, and help serve dinner without help. He is a very affectionate child and has stated that he wants to be adopted

Paul's pictures are a few years old but a family reviewing his file would be able to obtain updated information and pictures of him.

Paul’s file is from one of our orphanage partnerships and is designated as Special Focus so a family at any stage of the adoption process is eligible to review his file. His file is on China's shared list of referrals.

Current America World families who are interested adopting Paul into their family should contact their Family Coordinator about him.

Families who are not currently in the process of adopting with America World should fill out a  free PRE-APPLICATION and our Intake staff will follow up with you right away.
