“Steven” with Heart Defect Needs Family

10-½-year-old Steven is described by his caregivers as a clever and adored little boy with big, bright eyes. He currently lives with a foster family as part of his orphanage’s foster program. He has an active and outgoing personality, enjoys communicating with other children, and has many friends!  His file notes that he has quick reflexes and a very good memory. He can remember the children’s songs and Tang poems which have been taught by his teacher and then will recite them to his foster mom after school.

In class, he will recite them to his classmates and is well-liked and respected by the other children. Steven can write simple Chinese characters, numbers and phonetic alphabets. He loves to draw and do handwork. He also enjoys playing games with other children and gets along well with them. He goes to school Monday through Saturday.  Steven is a talkative little boy who loves music, singing, dancing, and has good self-care.

He has been diagnosed with a congenital heart defect (VSD & congenital pulmonary artery atresia) that may need treatment in the future.  In the meantime, he appears to be developmentally on track with good fine and gross motor skills, and he is overall a charming, personable, and active little boy!
