5 years old * gentle and shy * happy and healthy * delayed psychomotor * loves to snuggle * not talking yet *
4 year old Colt is gentle and shy. He likes toys that make sounds, music and cartoons. He loves playing with others! he is described as “happy and healthy”. His listed special need is “delayed psychomotor” and is believed to be at least mildly on the autism spectrum. It’s hard to know exactly his needs, but having a family who is ready to love him and find the resources which will help him the most, is his biggest need!
Here is an updated video of Colt!
He was listed with Lifeline agency in April 2015, then with Madison Adoption Associates, and is currently on GWCA’s list as “Indy”. While he was with Madison, he was from an orphanage partnership. Orphanage staff have questioned if he may have autism, though he has not been diagnosed. His original file mentions that Colt is very mobile and has good movement. He has received daily therapy over the past year to help with his motor skills and is learning to crawl and walk. It takes him some time to learn these skills. While he does not learn quickly, he does try. He is not potty trained yet, but when they put him on the toilet, he will go. He lives in the orphanage and he seems to be a very happy boy. He does not seem to be slowed down by his special need. In April 2014 the orphanage staff said: “He is not talking yet. He is a little lazy. He can walk, but does not like walking.”
A traveling family met Colt in June of 2014. The family was told: He can recognize strangers, play with toys, walk etc, but he seems to live in his world and doesn’t play with other kids. The family said that he loved to snuggle, cuddle, and be hugged.
If there is a family looking for a young boy and open to the possibility that he may have autism, Chase would be a perfect son! He is unbelievably beautiful and has the most amazing eyes!
