SERGEY, Age 4, BULGARIA
We are looking for a loving, permanent family for sweet Sergey! Sergey was born in January of 2015 and has been living in a children’s home in Bulgaria since shortly after his birth.
Sergey has been diagnosed with DiGeorge Syndrome, a rare chromosomal disorder associated with congenital cardiac malformation. Sergey needs a surgery to correct the condition, which, unfortunately, cannot be performed in Bulgaria. Families interested in learning more about Sergey should be prepared for this and have the support systems and resources needed for his treatment.
Sergey is a cheerful child who enjoys playing with other children. As his caregiver recently reflected: “He is very tender and loving. He is not troublesome and usual steps back if he gets involved in a fight with another child, for example, for a toy.” Sergey loves building towers with his blocks, playing catch and running around playing games and listening to music. He can be nervous when first going to a new and unfamiliar place and takes comfort in cuddles and affection from his caregivers to help him acclimate.
Sergey’s medical condition has resulted in multiple hospitalizations and in order to protect him from getting sick during recovery, he has needed to be isolated from the other kids after each visit. This, of course, has impacted his development, and he needs to catch up with his peers in several areas. But, as his caregivers share with us, he is a resilient child who is able to catch up quickly!
Sergey is a playful and expressive little boy. His vocabulary has been increasingly growing and he enjoys challenging himself to learn bigger and bigger words.
Sergey is in need of a loving and dedicated family. He is ready to be matched with a family immediately! Pictures and video of Sergey can be viewed on our password protected page here.
