Meet sweet Thaddeus. He was born in February of 2015. At the age of six months he was placed in a foster home. Thaddeus was born with congenital heart – atrial septal defect, ventricular septal defect and mild heart failure. He has also been diagnosed with ataxic cerebral palsy and moderate mental delay with autistic elements in behavior. This little guy really needs a family that is willing to take on a child with many needs. When the social worker visited him in 2018 she said the following: She brought him a little present of chocolates. He loves treats and was eager to open them. However in general when he is hungry he cries. He eats a lot and often goes to the toilet, more than once a day, but he also has constipation often. He drinks water from a bottle. He is able to sleep alone in a bed. Thaddeus is considered anemic and takes a medication for it. The foster mother looks at him in terms of a “baby” when dressing and undressing—she does it all although he will stick out a foot. He does not always respond when his name is called. He can walk alone but often looks for a hand to hold onto. He can go up the stairs walking and sometimes does it crawling. In 2018 an appointment was set for him to plan a final heart surgery. In general, he does not play with toys and he throws them. He does however enjoy playing with balloons and sometimes drums. He loves looking at his foster mother’s phone. He smiles and gets excited a lot, for example, playing with the balloon or being tickled but he also gets angry easily when he doesn’t get his way. We have a lot more information on this sweet boy. Just let us know!
