3 year old Shawn has been through a lot in his young life.  Diagnosed with retinoblastoma, he has had to have both eyes removed. He now wears prosthetic eyes, and is learning to get around without sight. Shawn is an orphanage favorite, described as "spoiled, active with good motor development". When he had sight, his favorite game was hide and seek. He would also get jealous of other children who the nannies were holding, and try to pull them off so he could be held. Sean also doesn't like to go to bed at night, and will playfully toss his pillow and sheet on the floor, smile a big smile and say "No sleep"....then he will clap his hands. Sounds like a real charmer:)
