Chandler is an outgoing and energetic 10 year old boy! He enjoys playing games, riding his bike, drawing, and singing! He is in 3rd grade at the local public school where he is studying Chinese, English, Math, Art, and Music. He does well in school and his teachers say he has an excellent memory! He cannot participate in activities that are too vigorous, but he likes participating in group activities and playing outside with his friends!
Chandler says that his favorite color is blue, and that he LOVES chocolate! He can take care of himself very well – he can get dressed, tidy up, and take the school bus all by himself. Since Chandler has a dislocation of the hip, his legs are not the same length; his left leg is a bit shorter. This also causes him to fall easily when he walks quickly, and the squatting motion is very difficult for him.
Chandler was hosted during our Summer 2016 Hosting Program, and he had so much fun spending 3 weeks in the US with his host family! Here is what they shared with us:
“He loves to swim, sing and dance. His special need doesn't slow him down much. He was very brave and loved trying new things including swimming, boating and rollercoasters! He was a very good eater and willing to try new foods. He especially loved fruit, hamburgers and corn dogs. He seemed smart and could read Chinese as a basic level. He picked up English well while he was here. His host family believes he would thrive as a youngest child in a family with teenagers. He loved the attention of older kids.”
Please help Chandler find his forever family!
