Adorable Year-and-a-Half Old Needs Home Now

Posted: Updated:

(Dec. 4) -- Wednesday's Child for this week is a cutey.  He's less than 2-years-old, and he has a name that's very traditional in the South we're told -- Flossy.

Flossy is attached to his foster mother Brenda, very attached. But childcare experts count that as a very healthy thing for a toddler his age, and especially because Flossy's real mother is out of the picture, and this is his second foster home placement.

"He's almost like a typical 2-yr-old, into everything that he shouldn't be into, climbing onto everything he shouldn't be into," says Brenda, Flossy's Foster Mother.

Brenda's had scores of foster children in and out of her home through the years. She knows kids, especially children cut loose from their natural parents, and she says Flossy's got what it takes.

"I've always said he would make someone a perfect little boy. Everybody looks at me -- he's just such a perfect little boy, I mean he does have special needs, and therefore, you're not, you know, you can't look for a perfectly normal special needs child, but, all that special needs can be over-ran with this beautiful little boy who wants special care...he just needs a lot of tender loving care," says Brenda.

Flossy treated me with a lot of skepticism. I did get a little smile out of him on the swing, but mostly, he just wanted his foster mom. Brenda says he's a robust child, 'sleeps well, and has a healthy appetite.

"You name it, you feed it, he's got it."

In Brenda's mind, Flossy's deserving of the best.

"He's just a beautiful little boy, and he needs a home, and needs a Mom and a Dad to just love me."

If you think there's a place in your home and in your heart for this beautiful little boy, you can begin the process of adoption by calling the Las Vegas number of the Adoption Exchange at 436-6335.
