YH celebrated his first birthday in September! He is a bright and cheerful little boy. Just after his birthday he could stand alone for a few seconds and walk if someone held one of his hands. He is an early bird—he wakes up happy and talks a lot during the day but gets fussy when it is time for bed. He claps and bounces to children’s songs, enjoys taking a bath and gets excited when he sees his foster family coming home.
The photo from his traditional birthday celebration has been cropped to protect his identity. We cannot share identifiable photos or medical information of YH on our public site but information and many photos are available for families who inquire.
