Hopscotch Adoptions


Otto was born in January 2003 and has Down Syndrome. He spent nearly three of the first four years of his life in a hospital ward for children with cerebral disabilities and now lives in an orphanage.

Otto is a charming, positive boy with an easy smile who quickly establishes contact with others. He is happiest when he receives individual attention, when someone plays with him, and when someone cuddles him. Otto plays with toys and briefly joins group activities. He enjoys music and attends an auxiliary school.

Otto is entirely dependent on the care of adults, including diapering, feeding and dressing, and needs constant supervision. He moves around on his own for short distances and can sit. Otto is nonverbal and communicates his needs mostly through crying and sounds. He exhibits some repetitive behaviors.

Otto is waiting for a forever family that will love him unconditionally.
