Birth Date: November, 2004
Damian is a distinguished boy with a determination to learn and master everything he possibly can. He has a charismatic personality and does not let his medical diagnoses keep him from reaching his full potential. He is always smiling and happy, and loves to give strong hugs to everyone. He enjoys music and has some pretty good moves of his own.
Damian's language and communication skills are not at the same level of other children his age. He does well being around other people, but he does not initiate interaction with other children and prefers play that he can do on his own.
Damian has a very laid-back personality and tends to go with the flow of things. Some of the activities he really enjoys include watching Toy Story 3 and anything to do with animals.
Damian is a very patient and determined little boy despite his ongoing challenges. Damian is diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder and short bowel syndrome. Damian has received a small bowel transplant and will need anti-rejection medications for life as well as yearly checkups with the transplant unit.
Damian needs a loving and committed family who will make Damian's health a priority so that he can continue to grow healthy and strong. Prior medical experience or knowledge is not necessary, but his family must be willing to be educated on his condition and learn how to provide for his needs. Damian and his forever family would be eligible for a number of benefits/services to help provide for his care.
