Francisco

5/23/2006
Francisco - or Frankie as he likes to be called - is a joyful, easygoing and sweet ten-year-old. Like many boys his age, he has boundless energy and seems to always be on the move. Because Frankie has been diagnosed with a syndrome that causes developmental delays, he is non-verbal but has absolutely no problem making himself understood or letting his great personality shine through. In school, he clearly loves to learn and teachers say he's always up for a challenge. Lately, he's become quite the artist, drawing nonstop. Frankie is a special kid in need of a very special family able to give him lots of help and lots of love. If you have a completed home study and would like to open your heart and home to Francisco, please contact caseworker Constance Orkin at 215-620-1768, corkin@northernchildren.org.
