Girl, born 2011
Ellen is a very lovely 3 year old girl with Down Syndrome.
Ellen is considered to be a more able child in her group. She can walk holding a hand, and she can walk independently. She needs some help with feeding, but she eats her snacks by herself. She has pretty features, and a gentle demeanor. We are told by her teacher that she is a fast learner. We note that she holds her crayons well, and tried to imitate drawing lines and circles. Ellen has been healthy. She has no heart condition, and has had no significant medical history, surgeries or hospitalizations. She is very sweet natured. She attends a special class in the orphanage with a group of other children. Beautiful child, looks well nourished, clean and cared for. There is lots of video of her too.
The agency has a $2000 grant available for Ellen.
