Benjamin is a special case for Harmony. He is already 13 years old and very close to timing out of the system. China does not allow a child to be adopted past his 14th birthday—which happens to be April 17, 2018 for Benjamin. Lily brought him to Harmony House because she is trusting God to find him a family immediately! Please pray with us for Benjamin and share his story so he can be adopted.
He was born with cerebral palsy and spina bifida, having had spina bifida surgery before coming to us. When he arrived he could only crawl. Now that Lily has him in daily physical therapy, his strength is improving and he is getting around with the aid of a walker. Lily says he has become much more responsive, smiles more and talks much more since coming to Harmony House. He takes care of his own needs and has begun joining the children in their after-dinner walks around the compound.
