Deaf Boy Needs Loving Home

From Linda Perilstein:

Cradle of Hope Adoption Center, a nonprofit adoption agency with more than 24 years of experience in international adoption, is looking for a home for a 3 year old deaf boy. Junius is a sweet boy who is in good health. He was found abandoned behind an emergency center when he was 14 months old. Junius is described as cheerful, friendly, curious and strong-willed. He likes to help with chores, play outside, and to help other children. He loves to play with toy cars. We have a video of Junius that will melt your heart. Can you help Junius become all that he can be?

Married couples and single women, ages 30 – 55, are eligible to adopt Junius. One trip overseas is required to bring him home. Please contact me for more information.
