John is a curious and healthy eleven year old boy who has a sunny and positive outlook on life. He likes to watch cartoons, listen to music and draw. He has a slight mental delay and struggles with hyperactivity and stuttering, but tries to work very diligently in school. When he grows up he wants to be a policeman so he can protect the “good people.” John has a strong bond with his mentor and enjoys talking with her. He states that he wants a family who will love him, play with him and laugh with him.
In addition to being considered for a MLJ Adoptions Special Needs grant, families interested in adopting John may also be eligible to receive a reduction in program country fees.
