Meet Alex! This little boy is only two years old. He is so adorable and sweet. He's a complete cuddler. He is at the age where he is really shy. So he was more apt to giving us looks that said "Who the heck are you?" than giving us any snuggles. However, he did let Christie hold him for a bit. It was awesome to observe how much love he has for his nannies. He is very attached to them. The relationship was a great sign of the bonding that Alex would be capable of in a forever family.
Alex is post operative for meningocele. This is a type of spina bifida. Alex enjoys tummy time. He can crawl some, however, it is likely that he will never walk.
We hope that families do not stop after reading that. We hope that the right family for Alex is out there and reading this. One thing that we have learned working with adoptive families of waiting children, is that what one family may consider a huge disability, another family thinks it's not that big of a deal. Alex may be in a wheelchair for the rest of his life. However, that doesn't mean that he is not able live a quality life. This little boy has so much love to give and deserves so much love in return.
