When I found out that Monroe was being adopted and wouldn’t spend the rest of his life (which would likely be very short if transferred) in an Eastern European mental institution tied to a crib, I cried with joy.
Please, don’t let that happen to little Gage. Let’s find him a family! Gage has a $4,500 grant towards his adoption!!! You can see a short video clip of him here: http://adoption.adeanthing.com/family-thoughts/gage/
Please email Andrea at email@example.com if you want more information!
From Reece’s Rainbow:
BOY, born November 26, 2005
SIGNIFICANT RISK, PLEASE ADOPT ME SOON!!
Gage is a very intelligent, happy, and affectionate young man!
From his medical records: Cerebrospinal partial Aplasia of the lower part of the spine, partial hypoplasia of pelvis bones, contracture of femurs/thighs/hips and knees. Likely common diagnosis of Caudal Regression Syndrome/Sacral Agenesis.
UPDATE! (June 2010). Gage is blessed to still be at the baby house. He is facing the institution this year. he continues to develop well cognitively and socially, and he is well loved at his orphanage. From his caregivers: The child cannot walk, he can sit comfortably and moves around with the help of hands, operates the wheel-chair very well, talks, sings, knows poems, letters, eats himself.
