Meet our delightful 7-year-old friend, David, a gentle soul who communicates through heartfelt gestures and embraces. While he may not speak, his body language is beautiful all its own, conveying his emotions to his caring caretakers.
This special boy exudes a love for music and the soothing power of touch. His openness to affection shines through as he welcomes hugs and kisses, cherishing every moment of connection. However, due to his challenges, his hands need to be covered to prevent self-biting as he tries to self-soothe.
David bravely faces the obstacles presented by epilepsy and West Syndrome, accompanied by cognitive delays, all managed with the support of medication tailored to his needs. Despite the hurdles he faces, his spirit remains resilient. His love for music serves as a comforting refuge, and his appreciation for tactile sensations reflects his deep sensitivity.
David's capacity for love, his openness to affection, and his ability to express himself in his unique way make him an extraordinary individual. With the right guidance and nurturing environment, he's ready to blossom and share his overflowing affection and joy with a family willing to embrace his unique way of connecting with the world.
