We are looking for a permanent family for an adorable little boy named Cristian. Cristian is 3 years old and currently resides with a foster family in Colombia. Cristian’s caregivers report that he is an affectionate child who “looks for contact with loved ones”.
Cristian was born prematurely and has been diagnosed with a speech and language disorder as well as infantile cerebral palsy and infantile hemiplegia. He has also been diagnosed with a chronic medical need that is controlled on medication and requires follow-up with an infectious disease specialist. Cristian is currently receiving speech, occupational, and physical therapies to strengthen and support his development.
Cristian’s spoken language is limited in vocabulary use, and he generally initiates speaking through nonverbal communication. He has incorporated some personal care activities into his daily life and is able to complete some age-appropriate activities independently.
Cristian is an affectionate little boy who has experienced some tough starts in his young life and is ready to be matched with his forever family. If you think you could be the forever family for Cristian, contact our Adoption Team at 212-400-8150 or email us at [email protected].
