Happy #TooCuteTuesday CCAI Family! Please share and advocate for Zhe!
Zhe was hosted in the US this winter! Zhe is a super sweet 11 year old boy who is easy to fall in love with. He is overall very obedient and does a good job communicating despite language differences. He has been picking up some English, including counting and saying things like, “bye-bye” and “good night”. He gives and receives hugs, kisses, and high fives easily. He is polite and will say, “Thank you Mama” when the host mom gives him something. He gets very excited sometimes and will get very loud and animated (both when he’s happy and upset). He is very ticklish, smiles and laughs a lot, and loves to dance, which is super cute! He is also quite the poser for the camera. He is pretty easy going and has become easy to correct. He likes to play by himself a lot, but will play with others sometimes. He doesn’t seem interested in watching TV, unless it’s a Chinese cartoon (then he could probably spend hours watching if you let him). Zhe likes playing in the backyard-going down the slide, digging in the gravel, riding bikes and scooters around. He also seems to like putting the train track together and running the train on it. He found the game, “Trouble” and LOVES IT! He also got the card game “War” for Christmas and has enjoyed playing that a lot. He loves the computer and will ask to go on it a lot, and the host family got him an mp3 player for Christmas which he now listens to all the time.
When he first arrived, Zhe could do a 24 piece puzzle independently, but was frustrated and unable to do puzzles larger than that. The host family gave him a 48 piece puzzle for Christmas, which he tried to trade with the host daughter, because she got a 24 piece puzzle that he could do. Of course, she didn’t want to trade because hers was a princess and she can’t do bigger puzzles either. Anyway, the host family and Zhe have been working on how to do puzzles together (separating the edge pieces, looking for all the pieces for one particular part of the puzzle, etc.), and one day he called the host mom downstairs to show her that he had put his 48 piece puzzle together completely independently! The last week of hosting Zhe got out a 63 piece puzzle he had never attempted before and was able to complete it independently! The 63 piece puzzle had been presented to him before, but he was too intimidated to even attempt it. This time he got it out and initiated it, along with completing other puzzles he hadn’t tried before. He also learned to “pump” himself on the swings – he was very proud and wanted host mom to get a video of him! The host family hopes Zhe finds a forever family soon!
Zhe is a Special Focus child, meaning he may be matched to a family either with or without a dossier in China and may also be accepted along with another child!
