Dharius dreams of playing in the park with a forever family

With the weather perfect for playing in the park, we met up with this week’s Wednesday’s Child – Dharius (2012) – for some swing-time! 

We soon discovered that if this friendly child with a lot of spirit had his way, we may have found ourselves at a Jurassic park as Dharius has a fondness for dinosaurs.

Dharius enthusiastically accepted and accurately identified the T-Rex and Triceratops that we brought for him in a fashion that would make a paleontologist smile. But Dharius also finds joy in the simplest things such as greeting people and making face-to-face human connections.

Dharius is doing well in pre-school and loves learning. Dharius is diagnosed with Spina Bifida and needs a wheelchair for mobility, but he can walk a little with assistance. He’s receiving Regional Center services to address his special needs and is making good progress.

Dharius will continue to qualify for supportive services post-adoption and training and support are available for the family that will dedicate themselves to helping dinosaur-loving Dharius become as dynamic as can be.

To learn more about Dharius, catch this week’s Wednesday’s Child and then give us a call at 1-866-921-ADOPT (2367) to learn more about adopting.
