Advocating for Sam

Introducing…. 12 year old Sam. Sam has the cutest smile and is very ticklish. He needs a family of his own more than anything.

Look at those eyes!
One of Sam’s favourite things to do is to play outside with his friends. He especially likes hide and seek and soccer. One day we played hide and seek. He was so funny. When I was trying to find him, he giggled as I got closer which gave his hiding spot away! He also loves drawing and art. Look at the picture below that he drew. I almost couldn’t believe that he drew it. Isn’t he talented!!

Sam told us that he likes school, especially language classes. I’m not sure how much English he actually knows but he said it was his favourite class, after art!

When asked if he would like to be adopted, he said yes. He has seen many/most of his friends adopted in the past two years. He said he likes dogs and would like a dog. And he said he would like some siblings too. (though really I think he would be happy with anything). He said that he would like to say thank you to a family who adopted him.

Sam is so happy and honestly smiles and laughs all the time. His special need causes him to talk with a bit of a limp but he can still run around and from what I saw he can do everything any kid can do. He can walk by himself but he did love holding my hand, and would do so after just meeting me.

Sam is a very happy kid and I pray he finds a mom and dad. As I left his orphanage after spending two days there, he sat outside and watched the car pull away until it was out of sight. The windows were tinted so he couldn’t see me but I could see him. He has so much love to offer. Email me for more info. :)

Saying goodbye
