It takes a leap of faith to get things going
In your heart you must trust. ~ Bruce Springsteen
We knew it would be difficult for Jack to be matched with the right family as it is a true leap of faith to take on a congenital medical need such as Xeroderma Pigmentosa (XP). Many months have passed, and the right family has not yet come forward for Jack. However, in our hearts we are still hopeful that he will be united with a permanent family soon.
Since out last feature on Jack (“Just Jack”), he has continued to learn more songs and progress in his studies. Now seven years old, Jack has learned about 100 Chinese characters with which he can write complete sentences. He can count from 1 to 100, has learned addition and is starting to learn subtraction. Another activity Jack enjoys is reciting songs and poems by memory.
Jack is a very capable boy who not only has good self-care skills but also helps others in getting dressed or using the washroom. Running, jumping and playing with other children fills his free time. One of his favorite games is playing hide and seek. Jack’s caregivers say he is a warm-hearted little boy who likes to help others.
We hope you will take time to read more about Jack in his previous blog as well as the XP family support site and share this post in the hopes that he will have the best chance possible for finding just the right family. This sweet-hearted boy could bring so much love to a family!
