Orhan, Age 9, Bulgaria
Meet this sweet boy, Orhan. Orhan is an active, gentle, and adorable little boy, born in August of 2009. He is 9 years old now and he really needs his forever family.
Orhan lived with his birth family until the age of 6 when he came to be in the care of his current foster mother. He is a physically healthy child who loves music and does well playing with other kids. His favorite activities are bicycle riding, playing outside and watching cartoons.
Orhan is described by his caregivers as “shy, humble and timid” and a “friendly and hard-working boy.” His foster mother shared that during the summer break “he readily helps with the farm chores, taking care of the animals and vegetable garden.”
Orhan is currently in 2nd grade and works with a resource teacher to support him. In school, he is learning to write and perform simple arithmetic operations. His favorite subject is math!
Orhan is slightly behind his peers developmentally and has been diagnosed with Hyperkinetic Disorder (ADHD) that is currently managed with medication. His specialists share that they believe his condition is the result of his tough beginning. They express optimism that with the support and encouragement of a permanent, loving family (which, unfortunately, cannot be provided by the foster mother at this point), and with continued work with a resource teacher, he will be able to catch up.
Orhan is in need of a loving, supportive, and encouraging family. He is ready to be matched with a family immediately! Pictures and video of Orhan can be viewed on our password protected page here.
