October is also Marv's month. His birth month and this year, it ushers in his teen years. As I was looking through the database to find more pictures of Marv the multitude of 12-13 year old boys without families was just too much. To survive 12-13 years without the love of a family, I cannot fathom. Some faces are still open and hopeful, some show signs of anger and some appear quite sad and hopeless. All of those little faces crying out for love, for guidance, for family. Sigh. Boys! Why are so many boys waiting? I have 3 of my own and the joy of boys...it's immeasurable. Let's get this boy home!
|I mean...seriously? Dimples galore!|
An advocate has met him and this is what they have to say about him: Marv is a very sweet, happy boy. He loves to play soccer, even though his vision problems make that very difficult for him. He has been living in a boarding school for typical kids, and receiving his own private lessons, but recently was transferred to a facility in another region specifically for children with special needs. His favorite class is math, and he gets great grades in math. His least favorite class is Ukrainian. He is said to learn more slowly than other children, which is why he has required private lessons.
|Seriously, I cannot even stand the cuteness.|
Marv will not be overlooked this month. We are recognizing his birth ALL MONTH LONG! Happy Birthday sweet boy!
