This sweet kiddo’s name is Noah! Noah is 7 years old. He was born with a meningocele and his spine and a malformation on the base of his skull. He also has been diagnosed with hydrocephalus, but he has being doing great since receiving a shunt as treatment in 2010. He also received surgery for his spinal needs and seems to be thriving! He was hosted by a family in the United States during the holidays, and they had a wonderful time watching his sweet and caring personality shine through. He requires a wheelchair, but his host family believes he may be able to gain enough strength to one day walk using a walker. He is able to crawl on the floor, and his fine motor function is on target. He does not have function of one leg and the other seems to have the ability to be strengthened using physical therapy. His host family has said that he is a smart kiddo who has a very broad Chinese vocabulary. He attached very quickly to the family and had a wonderful time with his host siblings. He is a sweet, smart kiddo who would thrive with the consistent care of a forever family. Please reach out to Great Wall if you would like to learn more!
