This beautiful child who could not be any more adorable is Kelly! Kelly is close to her foster mother and she likes playing with other kids. She likes playing with all sorts of toys, including balls, blocks, and a toy piano. She loves playing a game where you have to hold hands with another child. Kelly is a very happy and smiley child and she interacts well with other people. She enjoys sitting on the lap of her foster mother and will say “mama” to talk to her. Kelly could support her head at 5 months of age, roll over at 6 months, sit independently at 12 months, stand with support at 16 months, walk with support at 18 months, and walk independently by 24 months. At 12 months, she was making sounds. She can now say simple single words. Kelly was reacting to her name being called at 10 months of age. If her foster mother smiles at her, she will smile back. She understands simple directions given by adults. If her foster mother tells her to share her toys, she will hand toys over to the other children. She knows the location of some of her body parts and will point to them when asked. Kelly was born with down syndrome and she has no other medical needs. Kelly is a very cute and friendly little girl who is going to brighten each day of a very lucky family- we just need to find the family that will be hers forever!
The agency which currently has Kelly’s file has a $5,000 grant available for her adoption, as well. Other agency grants may be available based on the adoptive family’s circumstances.
$90.00 has been donated towards the cost of my adoption!
