SM will celebrate his 6th birthday next month! He waits in Asia for an adoptive family.
This little boy is known as quiet, shy and polite. While living in a center that is considered “a large family,” SM has become well liked by his caregivers and the other kids. He’s even made a best friend. When the “aunts” and “uncles” come to visit, SM will greet them with a shy smile.
SM attends school, can understand general instructions, has good independent skills, assists with daily chores and shows improvement with self-regulation. When he has free play, SM enjoys playing with toy cars and drawing. A recent report indicates he can walk, run, and jump despite his needs.
