Look at that smile! How adorable and handsome!
This awesome young man needs a mother and father to love him unconditionally and forever. Phillip’s special need is a spinal tumor and scoliosis. He is in a wheelchair, paraplegic and incontinent. The more important part is to remember how special this young man is. His Chinese name is Li Rui, from Hanzhong orphanage, his birthday is June 7, 1999, and he came to us in September of 2009 after having a surgery on his back. He came already speaking English and continues to improve with each class. Phillip loves legos, transformers, fried rice and fried chicken. He is loyal to his friends, is a good brother and a natural leader. He loves back rubs and snuggling on the couch. His smile is contagious and he is competitive. His upper body works fine, He can change diapers on his own, feeds himself, bascially he can do everything with his hands like other people do, he can shower himself, he can't bend over nor move from one place to another on his own, he needs help to put on and take off his brace
Philip's time to find a family is running out. He's already 11 years old and if he isn't adopted by the time he turns 14, he will never know the love and joy of a family to call his own. His original orphanage has not done his adoption paperwork, but they have told SFCV that if a family comes forward to adopt him, they will do his paperwork! Please search your heart and see if you might be this young man's family. If you have any questions or would like to adopt Philip, please contact me and I'll put you in touch with the SFCV liasons.
