He is in a wonderful foster family who does a great job caring for him and working with him on things like his fine motor skills. Simon says words and short phrases to express his needs and wants. He is calm going to bed and the foster family is working with him on potty training. He loves attention from adults but also enjoys playing with other children. He is reserved at first with meeting new people but when he gets use to someones presence he seeks to communicate with them. “Since the beginning of October 2015, Simon was entered and will start a kindergarten, in the beginning half a day. There he will have the opportunity to work with a resource teacher and speech therapist, and also with a physiotherapist.”
From birth until last December Simon was in an orphanage and was severely malnourished and not cared for, as it is with many children who are blind. Since being in a foster family he has grown and progressed in so many ways!

Tabitha (age 5) has made remarkable progress since her placement in a foster family in June 2015. This is what is reported on her; “At the time of her placement at the foster family the girl was fed with a baby bottle, had a bloated belly and didn’t respond to instructions. Although she has been in the foster family for just 2 months now, she has made some significant steps in her development – she now eats solid food, can feed herself solid foods and chews; she responds to being called by name; she follows instructions such as “Give me ….”, “Come here”, etc.; she takes off her shoes, she eats independently with a spoon, she is trying to produce syllables, she is now calm while bathed and she loves being in the water.
The child’s social worker reported that the girl has been evaluated by specialists and the evaluation has been positive. Since Sept.2015 the girl will start attending a Center for children and families, where she will start having sessions with a speech therapist, a psychologist and a special education teacher. It is expected that will greatly stimulate the girl’s further progress.”
Tabitha is a precious little girl with great potential and she deserves a loving family who can help her achieve that and surround her with love!!
