St. Johns County Adoptable Children

Meet Hunter

Hunter is a sweet and lovable male child. Hunter is medically needy as he suffers from Diabetes Insipidus. Hunter is also blind, non-ambulatory and non-verbal although he is able to communicate with his foster mother by making noises and clapping. He responds to his foster mother's voice and is very receptive to her. Hunter relies on a wheelchair, but also enjoys laying and rolling around on the floor and has recently begun crawling short distances. Hunter needs a patient, loving and committed family to help him meet his many challenges. Hunter receives physical, occupational and speech therapies and continues to benefit significantly from these services.

It will be important for Hunter's adoptive parents to have ready access to a full-service children's hospital and local in-home medical services. A parent needs to be familiar with the complexities of Hunter's day-to-day care.
