Elias is a 12-year-old boy from Europe who is hoping to be adopted.
Siblings Isabella, Orik, Elias, and Edmond were born in January 2001, September 2002, October 2004, and June 2006, respectively. They are all in very good health. Edmond has been diagnosed with mild cognitive delay.
Isabella is a motivated and responsible teen whose motivation, focus, and well-developed memory and thinking skills contribute to her academic success. She requested enrollment in a vocational program focused on agriculture and is in 9th grade in the 2016/2017 school year. Isabella communicates well with others, shows good self-control and tends to keep her feelings to herself. She easily maintains friendships and respects adultsí authority. While Isabella participates in group sports she prefers educational activities and also enjoys music and dancing.
Orik is an extroverted, cooperative teen who, like his sister, is a motivated student. He communicates effectively, makes friends easily, and respects the authority of adults. When involved in conflicts, Orik tends to shy away from personal responsibility, instead placing blame on other people or circumstances. He enjoys playing sports, particularly soccer.
Elias is a communicative, sincere boy who often takes the initiative to establish contact and rapport with others, makes friends easily, and respects his teachers and other adults. A very active boy who can be impulsive at times, Elias shows determination in school and does well in his classes. His main interests are related to sports at present.
Edmond is an agile, well-coordinated boy who communicates with a good vocabulary, engages with other children and enjoys group games. He has adapted well to his current orphanage setting and has made development and behavioral progress since placed there in May 2016. Edmond prefers to be in control and struggles to obey the rules. He would benefit from assistance and support with school assignments and homework.
Isabella and Elias live together in a foster family in a small town; Orik lives with another foster family in the same town. Edmond resides in an orphanage in a different town. Isabella, Elias, and Orik share a clear emotional bond. Our in-country representative is inquiring further about Edmondís level of attachment to his 3 siblings given the physical distance.
