Liam is an 8-year-old boy from Europe who is hoping to be adopted.
Shortly after his birth on June 28, 2008, Liam was diagnosed with ďa congenital anomaly of musculoskeletal system Ė pes equinovarus bilateralis and polydactylism.Ē Doctors have worked to rectify the formation of his legs by placing him in plaster casts for extended periods, a method which has thus far proven successful and Liam has not required surgery. He is able to maintain his balance with assistance, though he cannot stand or walk on his own. Liamís caregiverís report that he shows occasional interest in toys and at times attempts to utter sounds. He expresses his emotions and sometimes appears to take comfort from the adults around him.
THIS CHILD MUST BE ADOPTED FROM THE FOREIGN COUNTRY OF HIS/HER RESIDENCE.
