Marvin & Monroe {Taiwan}

Marvin and Monroe are brothers. Contact Mary Chapman for more information.

Marvin

Up, up, and away… Marvin, age 6, loves to be high up. From the moment he came in the room he was climbing up high. Wobbly and all - that didn’t slow him down! He was quick to climb both the rope netting and the steep wooden ramp. With the sweetest tug he would pull me along to join him in his climbing adventures. When he found the steering wheel he just couldn’t get enough of the car sound effects… the beep beep & drum brumm.



Soon we got to see the sweet relationship he and his brother, Monroe, have. Tagging along with each other they went in and out of the playhouse. Up and down the slide all while making sure they made silly noises and knocked at the door upon entering. 



Marvin has celebral palsy and delays. This special little guy is such a sweet heart. He is looking for a forever family. Could that be you? For more information on Marvin, please contact Taiwan Program Caseworker, Mary Chapman, at mary.chapman@gladney.org.

Monroe

Shy and not quite sure what to think of all the attention… Monroe, age 4, came over to check out what was in the special suitcase. Within a few short moments he was warming up and we were working on the animal matching game. Determined little guy… all while keeping a watchful eye on what was happening in the room, he completed the match of the entire animal game. Occasionally he would stop to ask his caregiver what the animal was.



Then on to the second match game… the Disney characters. Soon it was a high five celebration at each match! The look of joy in his eyes as the cards where lined up was priceless. At the end of our match pile Mary came in to join us, soon he was giving her high fives too! Total sweetness! 



No matter how shy Monroe was for us his love for his brother, Marvin, was always shining through. Their connection is sweet. Running after each other and playing in and out of the playhouse. The sounds and words passed between brothers only they could understand. 



Monroe is a true match for a forever family. He has a mildly enlarged heart and is looking for a family to call his own. A family that will play match with him, play at the playground, and let him warm up on his own time.  Could the match be you?
