Harrison was born in February 2004. He is in good health with typical physical and cognitive development.
Update April 2018: Our in-country representative finds Harrison to be a polite, intelligent, contemplative boy who freely admits to and learns from his mistakes. She feels that his life view has broadened in the past several months resulting from his integration into a foster home (which he much prefers over the orphanage setting where he previously lived). Given his overall poor social history, however, Harrison is still learning the meaning of forever family and his views on adoption are conflicted at present.
June 2017: Harrison is a calm, cheerful boy with a strong vocabulary who communicates well with peers and adults. He actively participates in conversations but also listens to others and respects their opinions. In group activities Harrison is helpful and considerate, especially towards younger children. He seeks attention and approval from adults and is motivated by praise.
A diligent boy, Harrison reads and writes, shows imagination, and has good memorization and reading comprehension skills. He can be easily distracted and is working to overcome some academic gaps in school, particularly with spelling and math. Harrison has good personal hygiene and self-service skills and always maintains a neat appearance. He is athletic and agile and enjoys playing competitive games and listening to music. Harrison has a positive attitude towards adoption.
