Intelligent boy who loves to draw

Posted: November 23, 2009

An intelligent 9-year-old with boundless energy, Alexander is curious about everything. He likes to sit and read with an adult and to talk about everything he has learned. A talented artist, he delights in drawing pictures and giving them away as presents. Other favorite pastimes include playing outdoors, constructing things with Lego blocks, and testing his skills at video games. Alexander thrives on attention from adults and loves to be praised for a job well done.

In school, Alexander benefits from a small class size and is proud of being an A student. He's been diagnosed with mild cerebral palsy, but the only signs he shows of this are weak ankles and sometimes an unsteady gait. Therapy is helping him deal with emotional and behavioral challenges resulting from the many separations and losses he has experienced.

Alexander dreams of having a permanent family to love that will love him and be there for him. A patient, committed, and supportive family that would give him the attention he craves and deserves would be ideal. He is close to his siblings and it is important that they remain in contact. He is eligible for financial subsidy.

Alexander and other children are available for adoption by approved applicants. For a free information packet contact the National Adoption Center, 1500 Walnut St., Suite 701, Philadelphia 19102. Call 215-735-9988, or visit the Web site at www.adopt.org.
