In the interest of adoption, LWB Community will be profiling some waiting children whose orphanages have asked for help in finding families for them. However, we do want to be clear that these children are not in LWB programs, and we have no personal knowledge of them.
Mickey is a sweet five-year-old boy from Deyang orphanage in Sichuan province with a mild, easy personality. He was born with congenital cataracts in both eyes. As a baby, he received cataract extraction and then had lens implantation surgery in May 2009. Bright lights can bother Mickey, and he will put his hands over his eyes in these situations.
