Tiny Tim

This is little Timmy. He looks like an adorable baby! But he's not...he turned four years old in March of this year. He really needs a family. Honestly, it could be a matter of life or death for this little one.
Here is a bit of his history
"In May 2012 he was sent to Rehabilitation Hospital for treatment. At the beginning he could not raise his head, was delayed development, average nutrition, could raise his head at 45 degrees when lying on the abdomen, could not turn over and sit, language and intelligence was delayed. His condition was better under the common efforts of nurturers and rehabilitation staff. Now he is 1 year 9 months old, can control his head, can turn over under the help, his muscular tension is improved. He also can recognize surroundings and likes watching other children playing. "

More updated info on precious Timmy says,

"He is four years old now, and at some point was sent back to the orphanage from the Rehabilitation Hospital. At four years old he weighs 10 kg and reportedly only eats from bottles. He cannot walk, he can however sit alone and roll over on the ground. The staff have said he does not grab things consciously with his hands, but he sometimes makes a fist unconsciously. This little guy really needs some love and a family, he doesn’t have much of a chance if he remains where he is. He babbles some and cries when he is hungry."

Here is a video of Timmy. He's so tiny and quiet!

His description also says that he is receiving PT and OT.
 Timmy really needs a family and access to good medical care and nutrition. He is weak and growing weaker. How long can he survive like this?
Let's pray for him and advocate for his family to bring him home!
Timmy has a Reece’s Rainbow account in his name, if you would like to donate towards the cost of his adoption so his future family can get him home more quickly without the worry of raising the needed funds. He also has a FB page dedicated to raising awareness for his story so he can get the family he needs.
