My name is Mario. I came to Dorie’s Promise when I was one week old because my mother has a mental disorder and could not care for me. The doctor at Dorie’s just found out I have Tourette’s Syndrome which makes it difficult for me in certain situations. I will be starting school next year, and I am so excited. I have been learning colors, numbers and shapes so I feel like I am ready. I like to eat A LOT, go for walks, play in the back yard and I really like to dance.
Mario is a passionate little guy. If something is bothering him you will definitely know it. He enjoys food, playing with brightly colored objects, going outside in the carriage or for a walk, and watching television. When he listens to music he bobs his head to the rhythm.
Many mission-trippers fall in love with Mario because he is very snuggly and welcomes affection.
