“Sweet doesn’t begin to describe this little boy!” shares Teresa who recently “spent a week with this charmer” in our Connect for Kids program. “KC” turns 7 next month, and currently waits in China for an adoptive family.
Teresa says that her favorite memory of KC from the trip will simply be the glow of happiness that surrounds him. This echos the reports from his caregivers that note that KC is an exceptionally happy child, who does not frustrate easily, is eager to absorb the world around him and is such a sweet boy.
He is also eager to share his joy. “During the week he sang songs for us, danced, and entertained us with his inquisitive and dear personality everywhere we went,” recounts Teresa, “He even saluted the security guards as we visited museums!”
When not at Connect for Kids, he lives with a foster family and he always greets the family’s friends properly. They all adore him.
KC likes to keep clean. During one of the dumpling activities, he was very careful and precise but he did not like getting his hands dirty. Once again when the group went out for lunch, he tried to use straws as chopsticks to avoid having dirty hands.
When visiting the zoo, KC especially enjoyed seeing the fish—he thought they looked good to eat! Over the course of the week, “KC was talkative, curious, friendly and cooperative. He is very verbal and was excited to tell us all that he knows” says Teresa.
