Nathan {URGENT-AGING OUT}

Each time we go to China we come home with certain children heavy on our hearts. Today I'm going to introduce you to one of those children.

Nathan will turn 14 in September, so time is of the essence. He has osteogenisis imperfecta and is so gentle and sweet!



The first time we met Nathan he came wheeling into the room in his wheelchair and Keely immediately began a rousing game of catch with him. He laughed as he chased after the ball in his wheelchair. Our hearts dropped when we discovered his age and that his paperwork was not completed.



But we just found out that his file is almost complete and we are so excited and hopeful that someone will see him and fall in love! He needs the opportunities that he will never have in China with his diagnosis!

Nathan is described as kind and steady. He does well in school and reads and writes. He is independant in his self care and can transition into and out of his wheelchair by himself.

Nathan needs a family to step forward as quickly as possible. He deserves to be seen and loved for the wonderful boy he is! Could he be your son? Please contact April Uduhiri at april.uduhiri@gladney.org for more information.
