A $2,500 grant is available for Hal’s adoption
Hal, 2 years old, was born in January 2016 and found abandoned when he was around 3 months old. He has been diagnosed with congenital cataract of the right eye and deformity of two fingers (middle and ring finger not straight.) Hal’s adoption report was completed shortly before his first birthday. He is described as a shy and quiet little boy with a ready smile who enjoys playing with toys and having snacks. He is close to his foster parents and likes to be cuddled by them. Hal can crawl, stand and walk independently. He can pick up small objects, move blocks in and out of a cup, hold a pen to imitate drawing lines and is cooperative with dressing. Although he is said to be delayed compared to peers he understands simple instructions, can respond to caretakers asking for objects and is able to say a few words. His favorite activity is playing outside and he likes playing with new toys.
