Henry was born in 2008 and has been waiting ever since he was practically a baby boy for a family. We have featured him several times and each time are so surprised he has not been snatched up. Henry does have deformities of his hands and feet but they don’t stop him from ANYTHING! You will see from one of his photos he is helping a younger child complete a puzzle. Be sure to watch his videos to see how he runs and plays with a ball. An update from June of 2019 says the following:
- What restrictions does his hand cause?
A: Although his hand has only one finger, he can eat with two hands holding a spoon, or he can use two hands to write and text and even plays badminton.
- What restrictions do his feet cause?
A: He only has one toe on his foot, but basically life is not affected and he will run and jump.
- How is his personality?
A: He is in a period of vigorous vitality. He has a strong personality, loves performance, is willing to share, and can actively help the aunt to do what he can within the hospital. He feels inferior to his disability at school and is unwilling to show his limbs to others.
- Does he understand adoption? Does he want to be adopted?
A: He knows the meaning of adoption and wants to be adopted and live with a family.
- Does he live in a foster home or a welfare home?
A: He currently lives in a welfare home and has no foster care.
