Luis was referred for international adoption, and the process was near completion when in 2008 Guatemala closed its doors to adoptions outside the country. After six years, the courts are still working on his case. Luis is a super little boy who is happy and amiable by nature. He loves to play with the other boys in the house who are his age. He also loves cars and trucks and playing soccer. Since coming to Dorie’s, Luis’ self-esteem has improved tremendously. He is more outgoing and more willing to participate. He actually likes to help do chores with the Special Mothers, and they appreciate him so much for that.
