Wellington participated in the agency’s recent advocacy camp. She was paired with an advocate who has a bio child with DS who said she meets most, if not all of the milestones for a child her age with DS. She said Wellington is an “easy and snuggly baby” with a very sweet and happy disposition.
Wellington is eager to explore her environment and bursts with energy from one happy activity to the next. She is mastering her walking ability and is able to get herself to get herself independently to where the action is. She is a good problem solver and has learned how to help the caregivers in their daily tasks. She has a cheerful disposition and wants to participate with her little friends in the activities around her.
The agency’s team met her in May 2016 and is able to talk with families about their impressions. Wellington will participate in the November CHI Advocacy Camp in her city and is waiting to be matched with an advocate as well.
