Beck from European Union



from European Union

Beck was born in March 2010 and after spending a few years in an orphanage where he was severely malnourished and neglected, he moved into a foster home in December 2014. Beck is blind and his development is delayed though he has made great strides since joining his foster family. Beck is a curious boy who actively explores his world, orienting himself via touch, smell, and human echolocation. He moves independently, including up and down stairs, by using a wall or other support for guidance. Beck walks on his toes most often and receives physical therapy to help improve his gait and balance. He listens to and understands others’ speech, remembers what is said to him, speaks in simple sentences, and asks and answers questions. Beck’s attention span has improved, and he shows particular interest in listening to others’ speech and exploring new objects. He independently feeds himself using a fork, drinks from a cup, undresses, and washes his hands and face. While he still wears diapers, he uses the toilet most of the time. Beck is affectionate and attached to everyone in his foster family. He expresses a spectrum of emotions from joy and pleasure to frustration and anger to feelings of shame and guilt when he knows he has done something wrong. He loves listening to folk music, enjoys engaging with his peers as well as playing on his own, and invents his own games. A devoted forever family who would cherish Beck and provide him with the specialized therapies and resources he needs would enable this sweet boy to truly thrive.
