Chuck was born in September 2008 and found abandoned about two months later. He has been diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. After 2 years of rehabilitation training he showed great improvement and could sit, walk and run. Although his walking and running aren’t steady, Chuck doesn’t fall over and was said to have basically normal muscular tension, good squeeze ability and normal physical development, but his speech can be difficult to understand. He is described as active and optimistic, ready to help others and warm hearted.
SPECIAL FOCUS CHILD RELEASED TO THE SHARED LIST
In 2012 Chuck began receiving rehabilitation training and grew stronger. When he was 4 years old he was sent to live with a foster family. As he grew he became more capable and his fine motor skills improved. He is close with his foster brother who has Down Syndrome and helps him.
In February 2014 he left the rehabilitation department and begin participating in a preschool program in his institute. He enjoys studying and is proud of his accomplishments. He worries about not speaking clearly and practices mouth exercises in front of a mirror. He understands money, knows shapes, can count and helps with simple chores in his foster home. In December 2014 doctors did a partial excision of his left carotid sympathetic nerve. After surgery his limb motion improved.
Chuck has normal intelligence compared to other children but you must listen carefully when he speaks to understand him. He enjoys playing games with other children, kicking balls and is friendly. Although he may have an “abnormal step” when he walks, this doesn’t affect his daily life and he is able to manage his self-care. Chuck hopes to have a family and is willing to be adopted by foreigners.
