Hello! My name is Lei. I was born in May of 2004.
What does it take to find me a family? I have waited for you through the seasons—spring, summer, fall and now it is almost winter again. I would like a family!
I came into the orphanage as a infant because I have a bum hand and arm and a foot issue that is better. I can walk on tiptoe through the puddles in the spring. I can jump like a frog in the summer! I can jump rope and run in the fall and in the winter I can walk strongly. I can do many things with my deformed arm and hand. I can zip my jacket and all the things other kids do. Of course, I can feed myself and dress myself and I can write, make things with play doh and draw. My teacher sometimes displays my artwork on the wall. My health is good and I like to stay active. I do well in school especially in math and art. I like running with my classmates. My teachers often say I am a hard worker and studious. I am a doer! I have an outgoing personality and am usually a happy guy. When I get frustrated or sad I like to play with my foster sister or my friend Xin and then I feel better. I like TV and “Sheep and Wolf” and “Armed Warriors” are my favorite shows. I like shrimp, dumplings, congee, and steamed pork. I am not a picky eater! have strong and sensitive feelings and when I see others leave with their parents it is hard. I like my foster family but want someone of my own who I can call Mom and Dad. I would like a family before I go through another season.
