Child Spotlight: Galvis (Update)

Jan 22, 2021

English Name: Galvis
Gender: Male
Age: 3.5 years
Enjoys: Building blocks and playing with friends


You may remember Galvis from a previous Child Spotlight we featured in the fall of 2019. Well, it‘s been awhile, and we’re thrilled to give an update on him! In the previous Spotlight, we introduced you to a spunky little two-year-old full of giggles. Now, he has grown into a curious, kind, and funny three-and-a-half year-old (who hasn’t lost any of his spunk or giggles!).

Galvis enjoys spending his days playing with his friends Judy-Alexis and Charles, sharing his toys with them, and building towers out of blocks together. He attends both preschool and physical therapy during the week, where he works hard and enjoys his time there. He likes to count aloud, expressing himself with the sweetest speaking voice. If you read about him before, you know that it doesn’t take much to make him laugh—which he does often! He makes silly faces to show his friends, and it starts a chain reaction of laughter and fun. His laughter is just as contagious as ever!

Galvis was born with spina bifida, and we have seen him gain so much confidence in his independence and strength. Now that he has grown bigger and stronger, he can cruise around his room in his ZipZac like a champ! He also loves to show his nannies how much he can do by himself—like brushing his teeth and helping his friends. Galvis has no trouble keeping up with the older children in his room, and he’s already showing what a wonderful big brother he can be to the babies in his room. 

Like most children his age, Galvis is curious, silly, tenacious, and joyful. He gives warm hugs and kisses to his nannies and nurses. They adore him and are so proud of him.

Though we are so blessed to care for Galvis, like so many children, his greatest need and our greatest hope is for him to know the love of a family of his own. Will you join us in this prayer? If you or someone you know is interested in learning more about adoption, please contact us.
