Boy, born December 2008
Down syndrome, heart defect (acleistocardia)
Oh my, what a cutie! Love his fuzzy hair!
Quentin has Down syndrome, but is otherwise healthy!
From a family who met Quentin in 2012:
We were able to meet him when we visited our son’s first foster home. The foster home is wonderful and the children are very well cared for and LOVED!! I was told that he has made great progress since a new caregiver arrived from the states. She absolutely adores him and was trying to hold back tears as she thanked me for coming and trying to find a family for him. The past few months he has begun seeking out attention of her, interacting more with the other children, taking more interest in toys and pulling up to a standing position. He loves being held and is adorable.
Video and additional pictures available for potential families.
UPDATE spring 2013:
Last time I saw Quentin was in early March and he was doing GREAT! I am so proud of his progress over the past year and a half. Not only is he walking steadily, but also making progress figuring out and doing things on his own, for example, climbing up the stairs to the slide and sliding down, stacking up chairs and stools to get in and out of his bed on his own. In the past the only noises he would make was to cry when he was sad or mad (which is rarely) but last time I saw him he was making noises like baby talk which to me was a good sign that he is wanting to try and talk/communicate…imitating noises, etc. He is also more and more affectionate and loving…coming up behind you to steal hugs and kisses.
He’s a treasure, and I can’t WAIT for some family to find him and take him home! He is SO smart and SO ready to have a family of his own!
