Jack

You may remember Jack from our September trip. He is the cute little boy who surprised us all by introducing himself as Jack in perfect English. I think he pretty much had us all at, "Hello, my name is Jack!"

Jack is 6 years old. He is outgoing and smiles easily. He has low vision due to cataracts. He can see when he holds things close to his face, for example he could tell us that the ball he was holding was purple. He put together a puzzle, stacked blocks, and repeated a pattern of blocks.



Jack lived in a foster home, where he learned to speak English fluently, until recently. He is now back at the orphanage.

He walks, runs, jumps, and goes up and down stairs independently. And he certainly loved sliding down the little slide that was in the room when we were there!



And listen to this, he loves dinosaurs that eat grass. And he likes when people read him books about dinosaurs. When he said that I just wanted to scoop him up and read to him all afternoon!
