Posted on Aug 9, 2017 by in Twenty VIsually Impaired |

4 years old * Born in July 2013 * loves to sing! * is learning English * Has the SWEETEST voice! * blind * lives at Bethel foster home

Landon is completely blind. He was born without sight. He is learning how to use a cane already and can walk independently in familiar environments (though slowly).

This video was taken in October 2017. This shows Landon learning how to use his white cane, and I love that it is long enough for us to see just what a sweet boy he is and how willing he is to learn! He’s such a treasure. Anna from Bethel says that she is so proud of him because of how much progress he has made in the short time he has been there.

August 2017 Video of Landon and his teacher singing a song about a mama going to pick up her son at school with an umbrella every time it rains. This is the sweetest video!

 

Landon has been at Bethel Foster home since November 2016. Because he was held all of the time in his orphanage due to lots of visitors, he doesn’t like to be put down.  Bethel is working on helping him with these transitions, so he can gain confidence in his abilities. He needs a family to help him feel safe and feels that he belongs with them.

Landon loves to sing! If he gets upset and you start singing, he will start singing along. It’s funny because when he is mad he’ll join you in song screaming first and slowly go to a regular voice and transition to something else 🙂  – Bethel


He was a bit unsure at first at the pool, but then decided he could use two rings at a time!

“His language has developed A LOT in the last few months! He is also in the English class. ”  – Bethel


Landon’s liver looks a bit larger than usual but all tests are normal.

Please let me know if your heart is tugged toward this amazing little guy. Did you hear his cute little singing voice? Oh my! He needs a family so desperately. He is making progress at Bethel, but of course his time there is unsure, and even they told me he needs a family to build a little cocoon around him to help him understand where he belongs, and that he belongs.Please ask about Landon!
