Aleksi, Age 8, Bulgaria
Aleksi is a very energetic and curious little boy who likes to explore his surroundings! He will be happy if you invite him to play and you will be surprised by how quickly he learns. Aleksi’s caregivers share that Aleksi is a sweet child who loves being cuddled. He loves to play outdoors and with his musical toys.
Aleksi has been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and a congenital heart malformation. Aleksi attends a school for special education where he has just finished 1st grade. According to his foster mother, Aleksi adapted well to the adjustment to his new school and really enjoys his time there. Aleksi is making great progress, particularly in the area of speech. His vocabulary is rapidly improving, and he can now say full sentences of several short words. He understands what is being said to or asked of him, and he can perform simple commands and tasks.
Aleksi recognizes those familiar to him and has close bonds with his caregivers. He sometimes struggles with activities that require long periods of concentration and learns best when he is in a familiar and calm environment where he is able to focus. He would benefit from a structured home environment and parents who are loving, supportive and excited to help him develop his abilities to the fullest.
He is ready to be matched with a family immediately!
