Meet Brandon

Please meet Brandon:

Brandon is a sweet boy who is shy and takes some time to warm up, but once he does he is quite charming. Don't you just want to pinch his cheeks? His special need doesn't hold him back and he was able to show off his skills after a while. As you can tell from the pictures Brandon and his foster mom are very attached to one another. It's very sweet to see.

Brandon is an easy going boy most of the time and has been trained to go outside when he gets angry in order to calm down. He seems to learn fairly quickly when given the opportunity and Brandon is very interested in learning. He wants to go to school, but he is only 4 years old. In China, children often don't start school until 7 or 8 years old. Even though a child may be in foster care and reaping the lifetime benefits of that family connection and attachment, they may not be given many opportunities for learning. Brandon soaked up whatever we brought to him and was very responsive. At home he likes to watch a TV show called Xi Yang Yang about a little lamb that is very popular.
