Colby

Boy, born August 2008
PRC

Listed: Feb 22, 2013

Colby is a precious boy who has been diagnosed with Down Syndrome and Patent Ductus Arteriosus (Congenital Heart Defect). From observation, the heart condition has no obvious affect on daily life.

Colby is active, extroverted, and smiles often. When Colby hears music on the radio, he dances with joy. He does well in dance class and has a good sense of rhythm. Colby also enjoys playing games with other children and likes to watch cartoons.

Update 2016:
Colby is very good at imitating; in his music and dance class, he learned a whole entire dance routine after being shown the first time! He has come a long way since his early days at the orphanage. At first, he was withdrawn and did not actively engage with others. Nowadays, he’s quite active and extroverted—he actively participates in all classroom activities. Although he was diagnosed with Down syndrome and has cognitive delays, his language ability has greatly improved. Every day before school, he’ll wave and say goodbye to his foster mom. When he comes home from school, he’ll say “hello mother” and “hello father” in his native language. Colby knows all the names of his foster family members, and can name common objects and foods. He has some challenges with expressive language but he’s quite good at understanding others. He has great self-care skills such as putting on his clothes and shoes, using the restroom, brushing his teeth, washing his face, and feeding himself. Colby gets along well with other children and likes to play games with them. His report states that he has a congenital heart defect but that it does not have any obvious effects on his day-to-day life; he hasn’t received surgery for his heart as of May 2016. An agency staff member met him on a recent Journey of Hope trip to China and found that he’s quite talented and showed off his martial art and rollerblading skills! He can speak words and simple sentences, but also communicates through pointing, touch, and body language. He’s been living with his foster family for about 5 years and they shared that he’s a great helper around the house and loves outdoor activities.

FELICITY for the Fox family — NC

We are the Fox family from a small town in North Carolina. Craig and I have been married 20 yrs! We have 6 children; Zoe (18), Gabe (16), Eli (14), Lillyanne and Colby (11), and our sweet Kinsley (10) who has been home 1 year from China.

Our adoption journey was a complete shock to us! We had decided what our life would look like but God had other plans! We had met a local family with 2 son’s (C-bio & Z-adopted) with down syndrome when our twins entered kindergarten. Lilly quickly became C’s best friend, helper and protector. Everyday she shared school day stories with me and I relayed C’s day to his mom. Lilly and C were inseparable and our families were becoming great friends. Lilly began talking about adopting a special needs child in kindergarten and we assured her that we would definitely support her when she was much older. Well, the conversation continued for years, her friendship grew stronger, and in fall of 2016 I finally said,” Lilly, if God wants us to adopt, He will place a little girl younger than you, from China with pigtails and pink bows on our front door steps!”

Guess what? My friend who was involved with hosting from Eastern Europe text asking if I had girl clothes! She text me a picture and … a precious girl, younger than Lilly with, yes, pigtails and pink bows! I laughed and announced that God sent us our daughter!

After being home with our sweet God sent daughter, Kinsley, we decided one more precious jewel was in our future! God had placed a sweet little face on my heart that I had watched being advocated for while we were adopting Kinsley. I couldn’t believe no one had started their adoption journey for her and knew God was preparing a way for us to bring her home.

We are so excited about our new journey to bring our precious Jewel home. We look forward to our new adventures as a family of 9!
