Scottie: “He Wants Parents Very Much!”
Scottie is an intelligent, positive, extroverted 10-year-old boy who gets along well with others.
Scottie has been diagnosed with hydrocephalus and had some initial delays, but his caretakers explain that he began to show great improvement at age 6 and is quite a mature young man, often helping the nannies and caring for the younger children.
A Loving Ambassador Team just spent some time with Scottie in November 2019 and observed that he’s quick to learn, follows instructions well, and has a great attention span. He is noted to have a large vocabulary and to be able to communicate well. A doctor who examined Scottie described him as a sunny, intelligent young boy who is kind and capable of natural leadership abilities. He would go far with a loving family!
Another team visited Scottie in 2009 and was also impressed by this remarkable young man. One team member described her memorable time with Scottie:
Scottie is a calm and mature boy. Our team was able to spend time with him in China last fall. He was so easy to hang out with while our team was visiting him. His speech is clear and he talked to friends, nannies, and to me very willingly. He shared that he loves dogs, and had a great time watching the animals at the zoo. He was fascinated with construction machines that were working beside the road. When we asked about his favorite foods, he eagerly shared a long list, including hamburgers, noodles, and dumplings. He is an expert at eating with spoon and chopsticks and even tried our a knife and fork to eat his pizza.
He likes to draw, was able to write numbers and write his name with a little effort. He presents as a very smart little boy and we know he’d be a joy to any family. He memorized the opening performance for our camp and performed with a smile.
He tried to help me improve my terrible Chinese by teaching me all the parts of the body. He led me around a store, then showed me where all the good items were. He learned patty cake immediately and then started inventing new clapping patterns.
Scottie takes medication 3 times a day for epilepsy and has not had a seizure for 2 years. He was diagnosed with hydrocephalus. While his file doesn’t indicate a diagnosis for a vision condition, he appears to have amblyopia, which is also known as a lazy eye. Our team observed him pulling some items and books closer to his eyes when observing/using them. I can just imagine him in my family. He wants parents very much!
Please take a few minutes to consider how God would have you be a part of helping this precious child, whether that is through praying, advocating, or inquiring to learn more.
NOTE: There are just a few $1,000 China adoption grants that are still available to new families adopting from China!
