Matteo 1

Meet Matteo, a charming, adorable young boy who was born in March of 2010.  His caregivers have shared that Matteo is a special little boy who is ready to be placed in a supporting and loving environment with his forever family.

Matteo has experienced some tough starts in his young life and thus was entered into the child protection system in Colombia at a very young age.  Due to his tough starts, Matteo can be quite shy when meeting new people at first, and often waits for others to take the initiative to establish a relationship.  He is currently living in a children’s home in Colombia where he has been residing since August of 2019.  Since living in the children’s home, day by day Matteo is strengthening his relationships with his caregivers and learning to trust them.

Matteo is currently in 3rd grade in school.  He has been diagnosed with a mild cognitive deficit, in part a result of his early life experiences.  His teachers report that school is difficult for Matteo and he benefits from receiving additional academic supports and resources from therapists and his caregivers.  Matteo meets with a therapist two times per week and his caregivers have noted it has made a positive impact on his ability to establish and maintain interpersonal relationships.  Matteo’s favorite school subject is art where he enjoys painting.

Despite the challenges Matteo has faced in his life, he continues to show himself as a resilient young boy who shows enormous potential with a family who will love him unconditionally and provide him with the trusting and protective environment that he deserves.  He is ready to be matched immediately!  If you think you could be the forever family for Matteo, contact our Adoption Team at 212-400-8150 or email us at info@spence-chapin.org.
