Jonny from Taiwan
We are excited to introduce Jonny! Jonny was born in 2017 and is 5 years old. Jonny ADORES listening to his foster mother play piano and excitedly jumps around to the beat of the music! After she finishes a song, Jonny will place her hands back on the keys to express his desire for her to play another song. Jonny also enjoys playing with toys that make sounds and light-up, coloring with his 11 year old foster brother, riding his tricycle, and building with Jenga blocks! Jonny has a good relationship with his foster family. His foster parents describe him as active and outgoing. Jonny is not shy around strangers or new surroundings. Jonny has autism spectrum disorder and global delays. He also has thalassemia. Johnny attends weekly speech therapy and OT sessions. He is enrolled in special education classes at pre-school. At home, Jonny's foster mother works with him to complete themed jigsaw puzzles to help him work on his fine motor skills and vocabulary. He recently completed a puzzle with various cars, and he is now able to identify a police car and fire engine! Are you a family that has the time and patience to support Jonny with making further steps forward with his development? Enjoy dancing to music?

To protect a child's privacy, Taiwan has strict rules limiting public photos of children.
