Darren

BOY, born September 2007
UPDATE!   Darren has been visited by a group of therapists, and they have such wonderful progress news about him!  " Our team has gotten to know this happy little guy over the past several years. When we saw him in April 2010 we were able to work with him during a presentation at the orphanage in front of doctors, staff, and caregivers. We watched then as Darren attempted to take his first assisted steps using a walker we brought with us on the trip. He was very weak, and tired very quickly, but those beginning steps happened with the assistance of our physical therapists.
This year when we returned in October, our first view of Darren was him in his walker, moving about his room! It made our hearts so full to see the change in him over the months since we had seen him last! He can pull himself up to standing position when he is holding on to something. He is currently very vocal, but is not using words. He plays with sounds, smiles, and laughs and has a very expressive face! He enjoys engaging in play while laying in the floor, fun toys, and we worked on reaching and pointing to things he liked while in a seated position.  Our occupational therapists say that Darren has good visual tracking skills and has full movement of both arms. He was able to hold toys and objects and was beginning to drop things into buckets during play.  Darren’s smile definitely stole our hearts, and we are praying that his family finds him soon! We would love to share more about this lovable little guy!"
From his medical records: Multiple congenital defects of development, CNS, eyes, locomotory apparatus, congenital bilateral clubfoot, strabismus
Darren is significantly delayed cognitively and physically.   He is typically a content child.  he is able to stand, but only with help.   Physical therapy and surgery can do wonders for him.   He is facing transfer this year, and will remain bedridden for life if he is not adopted.
MANY MORE PHOTOS AVAILABLE
Due to the significant needs of this child, we would request that any family considering him be home study approved  and/or have experience caring for children with severe medical and physical special needs.
$106.00 is available towards the cost of my adoption!

Please grab our Child of the Week Button (above) for your blog. Each week this button will change to show the current week's child (you only need to add the button once to your blog). The children that will be featured will be ones with $0 or very low adoption grant funds. By hosting our Child of the Week button we are hoping to not only raise awareness for that particular child but also to hopefully raise the amount in their fund. These funds have proven to help families who would otherwise be qualified and able to adopt them, except for the cost of an international adoption, feel able to commit to bringing home and giving the precious gift of a family to these angels.

Thank you for all you do to support and help Reece's Rainbow!
