His name is Lucas, he is said to be six years old and you can see he's quite small. He doesn't speak and wears diapers and can't walk really but he does stand on his own for short periods of time. We're not sure what his challenges are, diagnosis is always hard here, and especially without a medical history.
He was abandoned by his father at the hospital for over a month so they called us and asked if we would take him.
He is such a sweetie, very content to watch all the goings-on around him! The boys love him and spend lots of time making him smile and laugh. He sat during Christmas and put his gifts in and out of his bag and that impressed us with his skills.
Please pray for us and our Tias - we already have two other disabled children and this makes them each responsible for one in particular, along with their other children. And, in the youngest boys room, we're getting three new boys tomorrow from the Baby and Toddler Houses! We'll have a full set of little ones!
Is there anyone under that blanket? It doesn't look like it!
It's Lucas, getting ready for bed! Good night!
(Yes, he came with a bad pressure sore - please pray it heals quickly!)
