Advocacy: Keith

4 year old Keith is newly listed with Madison Adoption Associates. Keith is diagnosed as having cataracts and developmental delays. Keith does have excellent hearing and is able to recognize the different steps and voices of his caretakers. If he hears his special caretaker’s steps or voice, he pats on the bedrails or will laugh. He can entertain himself and enjoys playing with musical stuffed animals and music boxes. Keith is a good listener and he can recognize his own name. His favorite thing to do is play outside with his caretaker and the other children. Keith is described as active and shy. Please help us find precious Keith a loving forever family of his own! MAA has asked for an update for Keith because his file was so outdated. The update will be posted as soon as it arrives.

There is a $2,000 agency grant for Keith’s adoption with Madison Adoption Associates! Other grants may be available based on the adoptive family’s circumstances. Agency grants are awarded as agency fee reductions. MAA also partners with the Brittany’s Hope Foundation for matching grants, which are given out twice a year and to families that already have their letter of approval from China.
