Tomas: Eight is Great!


Tomas just had a birthday and is now eight years old!  Like most children, he’s probably very excited to be getting older and growing up. However, we always worry that the older a waiting child gets — especially a boy — the slimmer their chances for finding a permanent family.  We hope Tomas’ sweet, shy nature and winning smile will capture a family’s heart soon.


Almost always smiling and happy in his photos, Tomas seems to be enjoying his days at our Believe in Me school in Changzhi. Here’s a recent video we received of him helping his teacher water some plants at the school. Does this boy ever stop smiling?


While his writing is a work in progress, Tomas is learning to count and read some Chinese characters.

This summer, Tomas participated in several special activities with his classmates, including participating in several performances, finding snails, and doing a treasure hunt.


His teachers report that Tomas is an active participant in school activities and loves to sing and play with his classmates.  He enjoys looking at books — especially picture books. This past year Tomas has improved in his language development quite a bit.

We love this video of Tomas singing, counting, and reciting a poem!


In his spare time Tom likes to watch everything around him . For example, he likes to look at the trees and flowers and show them to his teacher.


Tomas is introverted and shy, and he doesn’t like to talk to strangers. However, he will listen to them carefully — always with a sweet smile on his face.

So in honor of Tomas’ 8th birthday, we wish for him the most important thing in life — a forever family who will meet him where he is, support him, and help him discover what he can accomplish in life.
