Xavier has life-long medical needs due to neglect that led to a brain injury early in life. But despite his limitations, this sweet boy is already a patriot. In fact, his favorite part of the day is when his school classmates bring out small American flags and all say the pledge of allegiance together out loud.
At school he also follows a command to use a mechanical device that turns on music in his classroom and engages in several therapeutic services at school. Xavier loves to be around people and responds well to tactile contact.
Listening to music — especially familiar Disney tunes — is one of Xavier’s favorite at-home activities. He especially enjoys having others sing along and likes to hold hands and “dance” with others while in his assistance chair.
Since Xavier is non-ambulatory and utilizes a feeding tube, it’s important that his adoptive family is located where he will be able to maintain the excellent services he currently receives. Xavier needs a family who will be devoted to him and his lifetime need of care and who will utilize the life-long and late-in-life care that is available for Xavier upon adoption.
Xavier was born in 2008.
