Jude is an incredible boy who will be turning 12 this October. He was born with mild cerebral palsy and muscle weakness of his legs, but with hard work and perseverance, he has learned how to walk without assistance! He is a brave, resilient boy who is described by his caregivers as being a child who “never gives up.” He wakes up one hour early every day so that he can practice walking for one kilometer!
He is incredibly intelligent and loves to study hard and learn. Jude is very independent, and he is able to use the bathroom without assistance and care for the younger children in his foster home. He is a sweet, kind, and caring boy who continues to have hope that his family will find him.
Jude is very ambitious and likes to say that he has several dreams that he hopes to accomplish! He wants to be a chef, an astronaut, a bicycle or motorcycle rider, a runner, and a doctor. He also is very hopeful that he will be adopted, saying that he hopes to be able to stay with a family until he is 100 years old. He sometimes becomes sad about the idea that he may not be adopted, and he says that he will “try very hard to be a good man.”
Jude is incredibly empathetic and loving to all caregivers and children he meets. A staff member took him to eat at a restaurant and he became sad, saying that everyone was able to eat at the restaurant except the waitress. He even asked the staff member if the waitress could eat with them! He also told the staff member that he did not want her to spend too much money on him, insisting that he only needed one steamed bun for lunch. He is a very thoughtful and tenderhearted boy who needs to find a family to call his own. Please reach out to us at GWCA to talk more about this incredible kiddo!
