Beautiful Boy: Beau


This sweetie is Beau. He will be 8 in November. He lives in an Eastern European orphanage, and he wants to be adopted. Beau can read and spell, write and count. The workers at the orphanage say his intellectual development is above average. Beau likes to draw and play with puzzles.  Beau has cerebral palsy and has walked with a spastic paraparetic gait, but there is news that Beau had surgery on his legs in February and should, according to doctors, be able to walk almost normally with special orthopedic shoes. 


This video of Beau is several years old but you can see from watching it what a happy and engaging child Beau is. A Russian speaker has said that at the end of the video, Beau is reciting a poem and that he has a slight lisp.




Beau is available for adoption to married couples and single women who have up to five children (including Beau) in the home. He has approximately $200 in his adoption grant. Beau has the potential for a bright future if he ends up in a loving family. Please help Beau by donating to his adoption grant, sharing his information, or finding a place for him in your home.
