Boy, born January 2014
Down syndrome, congenital heart defect
Fall in love with snuggly little Derrick. Derrick is 9 months old and was abandoned at a baby safe haven when he was three months old; shortly after he was diagnosed with CHD and Down’s Syndrome. Derrick is a charming little baby who can roll over on his own. He loves to interact with his caregivers and shake toys that rattle. Derrick’s caregivers tell us that he is good at following people with his eyes and locating sounds around the room. He is an enthusiastic eater and sleeps well. Derrick needs a family who will cherish him and advocate for him as he grows and makes his way in the world. Could Derrick be the son your family has been waiting for?
