Maybe You Are The Family He Needs!

Hello, I am 10 years old and I enjoy art, woodworking and spending time with my friends. I would love to be a part of a family.

This adorable, young boy was abandoned on the side of the road when he was just five years old. For the past five years he has called an orphanage in Burkina Faso "home". We know that he has a hearing impairment, but the severity is unknown. As a result he hasn't developed his speech and communicates with simple hand signs. Unfortunately, due to his impairments he hasn’t had the opportunity to attend school. In spite of these limitations he is successful in communicating and interacting with others. He is described as delightful, cooperative and creative by his caregivers.

Perhaps you have a place in your family for him or maybe you know someone who would open their heart and home to him.

For more information visit, select Africa then click on Burkina Faso to review the program profile. For additional information contact Gay Knutson at or call 360-452-4777. Be sure to reference case #83.

  1. I was scrolling through your posts because I was hoping to find an image of grain distribution or baby formula donations that I could share, with folks here who have given to us so generously-- to bring your way in just 5 short days. I was so surprised to see this adorable photo of a boy that I love. This is our son....years after this post, we are coming. We are coming for HIM!!! I can't wait to see you, share the gifts for the kids you care for, and to finally bring our sweet, beautiful son home.
