Nathan is a handsome boy with an infectious smile who is in need of a family. He came into care as an infant and is currently thriving in his foster family. His foster parents happen to be American, so Nathan is gaining some exposure to English. He has a history of pneumonia, TB and respiratory failure, which required multiple hospital stays when he was younger. A chest x-ray showed a prominent left hilum, possibly due to prominent vessels or to enlarged hilar nodes and Nathan requires the use of an inhaler daily. He is otherwise noted to be a healthy boy. He is noted to be somewhat behind academically than his peers. His fine and gross motor skills are well developed. He is an independent child who can complete tasks without help. He has a long attention span. Though he does not like to do chores, he does what is expected of him. It is noted that since living with his foster family, he has become more self-confident. He is a sensitive child and can get upset when teased. Fairness is important to him. His foster parents think he will excel in an adoptive placement. This little guy has great potential and Holt hopes to find the right family to help him meet it. This family will have experience in parenting, access to medical services, and the patience to help him grieve his losses and transition to a new life.
To adopt this child, there should be no more than 45 years age difference between the younger parent and the child. Families with no more than 2 children in the home preferred, though there may be flexibility on a case-by-case basis. * See country criteria for complete requirements.
