Matthew: A Child Who is Waiting
Matthew is a sweet and energetic boy, who loves to play with his caretaker and take walks. He is another Waiting Child who has been on our website for quite some time and really needs a family to call his own.
Matthew was born with microcephaly (a small head), which has caused some developmental delay. He can walk with assistance and has limited fine motor skills. He also had oblique inguinal hernias (groin hernias) on both sides, which were corrected when he was three years old.
At 3Â½ years old, he could walk while holding someoneâ€™s hand and stand alone. At this time, he also had an extra digit removed from his right thumb (polydactyly). There were no complications with his hernia or hand surgeries.
He is designated by the CCCWA as a Special Focus child and is from one of our agencyâ€™s orphanage partnerships. His file is now a shared file. A family at any stage of the process is eligible to review this file.
We would love to speak with any family interested in making Matthew a part of their family. Contact our staff at WaitingChildren@awaa.org or call 800-429-3369.
