Tomas Needs a Family!
Tomas is a patient, sweet 12-year-old boy who has already waited way too long for a permanent, loving family. Abandoned shortly after he was born, Tomas has spent his first five years at a care center before joining a group home in 2010.
Tomas has a $3,000 Special Blessings Grant to help with the cost of his adoption.
Tomas likes music and sports, especially soccer. In his video, you can hear him playing the drums — another of his favorite hobbies.
Tomas doesn’t have any known health conditions and he has been generally healthy his whole life. He has a calm, patient temperament and he gets along well with his caregivers.
Tomas’ teachers say he does well in class and is overall a very pleasant and well-liked student. He is a good student at his middle school.
Tomas’ birthday is May 4, 2005, and we are hoping he will have a family before he turns 14. The right family for Tomas will be a single woman or married couple (both parents between the ages of 30-63) with experience parenting older children. His future parents will need to have strong working knowledge about the impacts of institutionalization, as well as the patience, sense of humor and willingness to learn new parenting skills that are necessary for older adopted children to thrive. Tomas may do well with younger or older brothers or sisters, but the youngest child in the home must be older than 3 per eligibility requirements in China.
