Girl, born 2007
Julia, 8 years old, was born with Down syndrome and was abandoned when she was only three months old. Julia is currently taking preschool level courses, but her speech is well developed. Julia is a performer and loves to dance and sing! She is potty-trained and likes to help take care of younger children.
We visited Julia in her orphanage in late June. She is small for her age, which is common for children with DS. She was just precious. She recited a poem for us along with hand gestures, which we captured on video.
If your family is open to the adoption of a child with Down syndrome, please consider Julia. She could be a wonderful addition to your family.
