Impossible not to love

Today I want to share the profile of a little guy who sounds like a real character.  It seems that Maxim is in a very good children's home in eastern Europe, and is described as a "hooligan" with "a sunny smile."  Also "housewifey."  His description just cracks me up.  Does this kid have personality or what?  Maxim has Down Syndrome.  He is in a good place.  However, no matter how good a children's home is, it is still not a family.  This little guy is doing so well.  Can you imagine how great he would fit into a family?  Perhaps yours?  Surely there must be a family needing a sunny housewifey hooligan around!

Maxim 15H

Boy, Born 2002
Oh, how this little boy melts my heart!  Just look at his 
smile!  He is very high functioning, and will do very well 
in a loving family environment.  He has been blessed to 
grow up in a baby house and privately run home for
children with special needs, and he has been LOVED.  
He has many advocates and volunteers who love him 
dearly, and have asked us to please help him find a 

It is possible he has Mosaic Down syndrome.

We are waiting on his full medical records.  But he is very healthy, active,
social . . . just a love!!

From his caregivers and friends:   "Expectant parents need to prepare for Maxim 
difficulties and learn to accept it for what it is: hooligan, a little jealous, but very 
good-natured and charming.   Maxim respectable hoodlum, may, for example, to
 climb into adult shoes (larger size, the merrier) and enthusiastically stomping down
 the corridor until you catch up.   Loves to joke.    In its immediacy and sunny smile 
forgiven all hooliganism.   Given his state of health, Maxim has good prospects for 
further development.   He can not speak, but communicates well with the world
through gestures and some of the sounds, knows the names of colors and geometric
 shapes, animal names, colors, fruits and vegetables, loves to play around with toys, 
loves being read poems and fairy tales.  Maxim is very housewifely, helps with 
cleaning.   He needs a home where it will and will love.   
And it is impossible not to love.

Wouldn't you love to read this little guy poems and fairy tales?  Wouldn't you love to joke around with him?  Wouldn't you love to hear him laugh and see that lovely smile and watch him grow up knowing the love of a forever family?  He is an "older child."  Passed over again and again.  Because he is "too old."  But Maxim is not too old.  He is a sweet little boy who would blossom with the love of a family.  I am praying that his family will find him soon!
