Like any other 11 year old boy, he enjoyed electronics. But always asked before using any and when Was told no, or he had enough time on them, he was always very obedient and put them away. He does not particularly like TV. He would rather be doing something more active...whether that was video games or outside activities, or puzzles.
After only one month in the U.S., he spoke some basic English phrases and would use them readily.
He bonded well with both host mom and dad. He particularly liked his older brothers. He had one younger host brother who was 4. He generally was very kind to him, but was a little annoyed but nothing unusual for his age. His host family believes he could thrive in a family here in America. He also loved both our cat and dog. He loved the song Gangnum Style and would dance to it and always say it to make our 4 year old smile!
He has no known special needs. He had a perfect check up at the dentist and eye doctor. He has very good personal hygiene.
His file is with Great Wall. For more information about his file you can contact Jeanne. Her phone number is tel:512.323.9595;3091. For more information about my friends experience with him, feel free to contact my friend at kbrackeen@Hotmail.com or private message my friend on FB at Karen Brackeen Graham.

Do you think some orphans cry themselves to sleep at night?
Do you think they look longingly at other families that are passing by?
Do you ever wonder what an orphan is thinking when they are returned? For not being perfect? For not being good enough? For not looking a certain way?
There is a little boy upstairs in my house right now... He doesn't have a mom or dad committed to him yet.
It's storming, so I went to check on the kids. This little boy is sleeping soundly. He is laying on his side, snuggling his teddy bear..... I just watched him sleep for a moment. I wondered what was he thinking as he laid his little head down. What was his last thought before dozing off?
He ran into my daughters room earlier and said... Where is daddy? Which he calls my husband..:( he was so worried because he couldn't find him. He seemed to be in a panic.
What will happen when he returns to Chln@ in a few days? Will he be in a panic all alone? Will someone comfort him? Will someone give him a reassuring hug and tell him a family will come?
I am praying like never before for his family to please step forward... I thought it would be 'fun' to step forward and offer respite for this family. I hate this. I am broken hearted.
He is adorable. Loves his chopsticks. Speaks English and understands it. Sleeps with 3 teddy bears. Loves video games and swimming. Goes to bed easy and sleeps all night.
He would do great in most any family. He loves kids. He is so awesome with our little kids. We have a son with a PICC line, he was so gentle when he saw that. He is very helpful.
He is 7 years old. If you are interested.. Please contact Gre@t W@ll adoption agency.:)
