​Report from a visit to his orphanage May 2018
“This little boy seemed to be a favorite at the orphanage. The lady that does paperwork at the orphanage knew him very well and he run up to her as soon as he saw her and they hugged. The teacher bragged about him and I was told his foster mom is very good with him. He lives in a foster family that is very involved with orphanage activities and he often participates in events or field trips. He has had paperwork for years and they seemed surprised he was still waiting. He attends school with Half the Sky and has always lived with the same foster family

They had a computer touch screen at school and he knew his way around it really well. Another boy was looking for a song and he kept pressing a different button and running away to dance to the song he was choosing.

He followed directions well and was obedient to his teacher and polite during class time. They were learning to use a pencil and had a good grasp. All kids in his class had Down Syndrome and most of them had more delays than him.”

Another report

“Jenkins is described as an adorable little boy. He is able to walk, run, and use a spoon to feed himself. He enjoys watching TV and can focus well on the TV. Jenkins is able to follow simple instructions from adults and listen to their conversations. He caretakers say that he sometimes looks like a little adult when he is walking in the yard. Jenkins performs well in school and knows all the names of his classmates. He colors, plays with blocks, and sometimes dances at school.”

Emmett’s file was released to the shared list the week of 7.10.17

TwentyLess is not an agency, it is an advocacy site run by an adoptive mom (me) who would love to see every child with a family of their very own.
