This is Matthew, who has been waiting for a family for a long time. Matthew is a sweet and energetic boy, who loves to play with his caretaker and take walks. 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. At 3 ½ years old, he could walk while holding someone’s hand and stand alone.
He also had oblique inguinal hernias (groin hernias) on both sides, which were corrected when he was three years old. 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 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.
Please contact our China staff to get more information about Matthew and how to make him a part of your forever family. Email WaitingChildren@awaa.org or call 800-429-3369.
