being cuddled and loves being the center of attention. A perfect day for Thomas would be being cuddled and sung to the whole time.

One of his favorite activities is going outdoors in his specialized wheelchair, feeling the warm sun on his face and the cool breeze in his hair. During the summer, he delights in keeping cool in the swimming pool. He also likes listening to music.

Thomas is able to communicate through crying and babbling. Like many children his age, Thomas is comforted by the touch of his caregiver. He also enjoys being able to stretch on the mat in his classroom and going for walks with the staff from his school.

Though Thomas currently lives in a medical facility, he is ready to be adopted by a family who has been educated about his special needs and his daily routine. The ideal family for him would be patient, loving, and committed. This little boy would bring joy to the family that welcomes him into their home.

Thomas and other children are available for adoption. For information, contact Taylor Rotolo at the National Adoption Center. trotolo@adopt.org
