Meet Anthony

This sweet boy with the mischievous smile was born in August 2014 – you may remember him from being a part of our Shepherd’s Field Children’s Village (SFCV) family! He was born with myelomeningocele/hydrocephalus, and underwent a mass reduction operation in March 2015, then a VP shunt placement in April 2015 and a hernia repair in May of the same year – 2015 was a very busy year for him!

Anthony is unable to walk, but scoots around quite speedily in his wheelchair. He has a very bubbly personality and can sometimes be a ‘troublemaker’ in the funniest ways, but really just wants to play and be your friend. He receives special education onsite in the orphanage school, including art, music and dancing, which he enjoys. On our staff’s last visit to his orphanage, Anthony was amazing, flying around in his wheelchair with a huge smile on his face – he even busted a few moves on the dance floor with his wheels. Will you help us find a loving family for Anthony? He’d love to run rings around you!

Will you help Anthony make this a reality? His file is currently at Madison Adoption Associates. Email for more information, or contact Madison Adoption directly at

Time passes so quickly so please pray and share his story and photos!
