Logan is an energetic and curious 8-year-old boy who enjoys music and has a gift for dancing.
He came into care at birth and is diagnosed as positive for CMG IgG and negative for CMV IgM. He also has a curved right arm due to an injury that didn’t heal properly, but that doesn’t slow him down!
Sociable and friendly, Logan would rather play with his friends than by himself and loves to be snuggled and show affection.
Logan is delayed academically and currently studies at kindergarten level in his care center. But he works hard on his schoolwork and loves naming his colors and animals, including dog, duck, cat and horse.
In his free time Logan loves to watch TV and play with blocks. At snack time he especially likes sweets and stir-fried noodles.
An experienced family of Catholic faith with excellent resources and understanding of older child adoption – and one with lots of snuggles and love to give – would be the best for Logan.

Experienced parents of Catholic faith who are open to unknowns and have a good understanding of older child adoption would be best for Quinton.

Exposure to alcohol. This may be the most vague and full-of-unknowns special need you’ll come across in the profiles of children waiting to be adopted. It includes a vast array of outcomes, sometimes including no effects at all. However, many parents jump to an extreme when they first read “alcohol exposure” — thinking, “This must mean they have Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD).” Or, families nearly skip over it — thinking, “It’s so common… it must not be a big deal.” An informed approach to adopting a child with alcohol exposure lies somewhere in the middle: informed by research, supported by other families’ experiences, and always with the best interests of the child as the deciding factor.
