Sweet Anand loves it when people pay attention to him – he smiles and makes eye contact whenever he’s spoken to or touched. He’s very calm and enjoys soft toys that make sounds. The staff is working with him on building attention and establishing basic self-care habits and social skills. Anand attends school every day.
Anand has delays in physical and neuropsychic development, but he has shown significant progress recently; he can independently stand and remain standing while holding support, such as his bed railing. He can stand on his toes, and when placed in a walker, he moves short distances. In addition, Anand can crawl, his fine motor skills are improving, and he can perform basic tasks.
Anand has been diagnosed with bilateral neuro-sensory deafness. Despite that, he pronounces continuous syllables.
Anand needs and deserves a loving family to help him reach his potential. Please reach out to our Bulgaria team if you’d like to learn more about this precious boy!
CCAI placed its first Bulgarian child in 2015, and the program has grown ever since! Like most intercountry adoption programs today, Bulgaria places older children, children with special medical needs, and sibling groups. The most significant “need” is for families open to children eight and above and children with medical conditions. In fact, families open to children 9+ or younger children with Down syndrome can be matched in as little as 3-6 months from dossier submission!
CCAI’s parent preparation resources give families the tools to welcome a special child into their hearts and home. The Bulgaria program is running strong, and CCAI warmly invites families to view just a few of the many children waiting for their forever families.
