Boy, born January, 2004
Down syndrome, mental delays, inborn partial optic atrophy of both eyes
From an adoptive family who visited him in 2014: ” He is hilarious. He is on puree but can take some lumps. That means he is usually the last to eat and squacks with displeasure. He loves to makes noises with his lips and will thrive in a family. I bet he will learn to speak. When I came to visit my son he came and sat on the couch next to me and held my hand for 20 minutes. He is not particularly shy. He does very small bits of rocking and does not do much stimming. He is a favorite of the caretakers. He is a sweet and curious little guy who is the size of a 4 or 5 year old.”
From an adoptive family who visited with him in June 2013: I met Delmar today. He is really tiny … maybe the size of a 3 year old, very petite in build. He was quite shy and didn’t want to come near me. He moved away when I tried to touch his hand. He was more open with the therapist who was there (a guy). Mostly he just sat on a mat, rocking and looking into space. Occasionally he waved his hands around. He’s a beautiful little boy, and was adorable in a tiny pair of overalls.
