Hello CCAI families! Here is your weekly dose of cute – please meet Shi! He is 9 years old. Shi had the opportunity to participate in our Winter Hosting Program 2015. He loved living with his host siblings, and would really love to have his own siblings some day! Please share his story to help this sweet boy find his family!
Here is what his host family shared with us:
“Shi is a typical boy – he loves to play basketball and with matchbox cars. The only thing he dislikes is arts and crafts. Currently, he is running around the house with a flashlight hunting for monsters under our beds. He doesn’t let his skull abnormality keep him from participating in games. As the Nerf darts were flying around the house, he went and put on his helmet before I told him to. He is not a picky eater. He will choose healthy foods over sweets. Our dentist praised his teeth brushing habits, and Shi had no cavities. He loves to take bedtime baths. He sleeps well and dresses himself.
Shi is a sponge! He was able to pick up English so quickly! We are a family of 12 and within one week the clever boy knows all our English names. He is a sweet boy with a good temperament and he really loves hugs! He is sensitive boy with just a pinch of naughtiness added. He is always curious and up for any challenge. He likes to run with the older boys and when they are tired of playing he is content to play with our 6 year old daughter. Shi is so bright! He is able to look at directions and build complicated Lego figures without any help!
Shi would be a wonderful son and brother in any size of family. He can be a snuggle bunny and we have fallen in love with him!”
Shi’s host family is willing to talk with families that are seriously interested in adopting him! Please ask the Waiting Child Department for more information.
Shi is a Special Focus child, meaning he can be matched to a family either with or without a dossier in China and may also be accepted along with another child! He is diagnosed with Head and chest malformation, poor development of right clavicle, and missing parietal bone. Please call 303-850-9998 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about Shi!
