Nicholas from Texas
Nicholas is a sweet child with a heart-warming smile and a glowing spirit. He likes to get out and go to new places and experience new things. He enjoys interacting with his caregivers and will entertain them by singing spontaneously, bringing plenty of attention his way. Nicholas likes playing in the swimming pool with his caregivers. Nicholas enjoys relaxing and quiet times as well. Nicholas likes to listen to music and take in all that is going on around him. He enjoys attending school with his peers and he participates very well in his class. He learns at a slower rate than other children his age. Nicholas is diagnosed with severe Epilepsy and is legally blind. He has also experienced hearing loss, but enjoys all the auditory bliss that comes through his hearing aids. Nicholas is non-verbal and communicates primarily through touch. He responds well to this approach and is becoming increasingly more social. Through consistent therapeutic resources, Nicholas has gained muscle strength and continues to make significant progress. He thrives through loving, consistent care and attention. Nicholas hopes to have a committed and loving family to share all the blessings of what his wonderful future holds. View my video on KLTV7 "Gift of Love".
Nicholas' forever family will need to be compassionate and able to assist him, not only with his medical needs, but his day-to-day life activities. They will be skilled in utilizing available resources in the community to provide Nicholas the special care and medical services he needs. Nicholas' family will be able to receive all the love he has to offer as they provide the gracious care he deserves.
