Yesterday, a sweet boy from Thailand just jumped off the page and into my heart. Meet Anan:
Precious Anan is listed as "developmentally disabled." I know enough by his physical characteristics that he has Down Syndrome. But, there is so much more to him, and people with the same "disability". People with down syndrome are some of the sweetest people that God put on this Earth. They are so loving, always willing to hug everyone they come across. They typically have the best smiles and a wonderful sense of humor.
I just know whoever decides to sponsor Anan will be blessed beyond measure.
Like I said, Anan is from Thailand. He is 8 years old and his birthday is February 18th, 2005. He lives with his parents and two siblings. Anan helps out his family by doing household chores.
Sadly, Anan is not attending school. I'm guessing that due to his special needs, there is not a local school that is equipped to handle him. As a teacher, I know how much benefit there is to having children with special needs included into the classroom. I wish he was able to attend a school.
For fun, Anan loves to ride his bike, play soccer, and singing.
Well, a friend and I will be sponsoring Anan. We just both love him too much to see somebody else sponsor him. We are beyond excited!
