Gender: Male
Description: *This child’s file was formerly on the shared list*

From an advocate who met Matthew in Nov 2016:

Matthew is handsome, energetic, silly, strong willed, and curious. His favorite activity was music and he would dance when our music therapist played the guitar. He shares well and is helpful. Needs a lot of redirection to stay on task. Attempted to repeat some English words. He is able to run and walk up stairs without assistance. Can draw lines, but doesn't stay on line when tracing (possibly due to vision impairment). Enjoys coloring, painting and playing with play dough. Can feed himself. Was always willing to help clean up toys and gathered shoes for the younger children.

From Dec 2011:

Matthew is a naughty boy, can go up and down stairs, can jump off the ground and can stand for 5 minutes with one foot. He can still imitate drawing lines and cross, he can pick the peanut with chopsticks and catch the ball; he can recognize big and small, left and right; he can manage himself well, can put on and off the clothes, tie the shoes and wash his hands. He is extroverted, active, restless, naughty, ready to smile and fond of playing toys; quick reaction, energetic, fond of playing, he would like to play with other children and get along well. We hope he will return to a family, has a happy life and grow healthily.
