Child's Code: Bernard
Birth Date: 2/5/2010
Gender: Male
Description: *This child’s file was formerly on the shared list*

From an advocate who met Bernard in Nov 2016:

He enjoyed the balloons, cars, and playing tag. Was eager to help and liked blowing kisses. Benefits from a quiet environment and prefers personal interactions over large groups. He has impaired balance, will fall at times when distracted by play. Can dress himself without assistance. He demonstrates a decrease in social, physical, and communication compared to other children with similar diagnosis in an institution. Appears to have normal vision.

From Sept 2013:

Bernard has a good appetite. He is lovely, can sit and stand alone, can walk with holding and one hand held, can use thumb and index finger deftly, can button and unbutton; easy to be shy. Nurturer often plays with him and takes him to walk around. He is shy, ready to smile and also likes playing toys, likes being cuddled by nurturer. We hope he will return to a family, has a happy life and grow healthily.
