Percy

***   $10,000 GRANT AVAILABLE   ***

AGENCY DESIGNATED SPECIAL FOCUS CHILD

Percy was born in June 2012 and had successful surgery when he was less than a year old for a tethered cord syndrome (TCS) and a cystostomy (they created an opening in the bladder through his abdomen so that he urinated through a tube in his bladder). He is also diagnosed with scoliosis. His medical report also says that had a cardiac issue, but the orphanage confirms this is an error and that he has no cardiac issues. DON’T MISS HIS OCTOBER 2017 UPDATE BELOW!!!

  At the time of his report Percy was living with a foster family and was reported to be clever. He was starting to speak, knew his body parts, and had age appropriate mental development. He had good gross and fine motor skills and was able to crawl, stand, and walk holding on to a hand.  Percy was said to have a bright, winning personality and loved to stack blocks, play with toys and snuggle with his foster mom.

OCTOBER 2017 UPDATE BELOW: 

Percy is a very bright and cheerful boy. He has an adventurous personality, is eager to try new things, and has an open disposition that is friendly, but not inappropriately so. He is not afraid of foreigners from overseas and was immediately interested in learning English with American volunteers in school and was one of the first to master the alphabet song.  He has a good ear for language and has soaked up everything he can learn in English and he retains it (colors, shapes, animals, clothing, parts of the body, etc.). He has a great sense of humor, loves to laugh, and gives a loud “Good Morning!” and hard high five whenever he sees his English teachers.  In Chinese, he’s learned to read some Chinese characters, knows his numbers, has started basic math and knows many songs and dances from school.  Percy lives with an attentive foster family who would love to see him adopted as they know that he needs medical treatment from pediatric specialists.  He interacts appropriately with peers, is silly and fun with his little friends, but not unkind.

Percy is attached to his foster parents and does not show any signs of attachment disorders.  This is an amazingly resilient little boy who needs some expert medical care and a loving forever family to reach his full potential. In a Denver Developmental Screening done 6 months ago, Percy scored advanced in language and gross motor skills, average in fine motor skills, and a bit delayed in emotional development which is fairly common for children coming from orphanages or foster care.
