Boy, Born March 30, 2007

From a missionary who visited with him in May 2010:  “ Jimmy is a delightful three year old with Down Syndrome.  He is decribed as being quiet and playful.  Jimmy doesn’t walk by himself yet, but he can get anywhere he needs by holding onto furniture and walls.  He only says a few words, but understands so much more. Jimmy has a close relationship with his foster father.  When foster dad hugs him and raises him up, he laughs happily.  Jimmy also loves the outdoors.  When foster mom takes him to pick up his older foster brother from school, he raises his head in his stroller, looks at the sky, and laughs heartily.  He is curious about everything. ”

Update in July 2011:  Jimmy, now four years old, has been on the shared list for a long time … At the time his file was submitted, he didn’t even walk yet! Now he runs. When the file was prepared, he didn’t speak at all. He’s still a man of few words, but he does call those in his foster family by name …  If his family doesn’t find him soon, they may move him out of his foster home to make room for another child who they feel may have a better chance at a family.”

JIMMY for the Duvall family — IN

 photo fwbutton150.png

Jon and Carly Duvall have been married for 9 years, and have three wonderful children ages 7, 6, and 5. They met at the small Christian school they both attended and got married after 4 years of dating. They live in Fort Wayne, Indiana, where they were both born and raised.

The Duvall’s talked about their desire to adopt early on in their marriage, but ended up having three children very close together and were caught up in the busyness of raising a young family. As their children have grown, God has been bringing the call to adopt to the forefront. They did not set out to adopt a child with special needs, but God had a different plan. When they found Asher (Jimmy), they knew he was their son and it began to make perfect sense. Carly had lost a younger sister who had Down syndrome and died from a hole in her heart. God was completing His perfect plan!

Jon, Carly, and family are so excited to bring Asher home and give him the love and family he deserves. They are trusting in God’s provision in the financial aspect of this process and would be so grateful for any support as well as prayers.

JiminyBoy, born April 2007
Down syndrome

Jiminy is a sweet boy who has been diagnosed with Down syndrome. He is a very independent little boy who is doing well. Sometimes he will need to be reminded to go potty but other than that he can do everything all by himself! Jiminy can run, jump, go up and down stairs, and he likes to pinch things. Jimmy loves to eat! His favorite foods are rice, noodles, and fruits. He is now in kindergarten where he is active and outgoing. Jiminy can understand what people say but he does not know how to use big words. Jiminy can usually use words like, ba, ma, hao, yao etc. Jiminy lives with a foster family who lets him listen to lots of music. He loves trying to sing along!

Boy, born 01/19/07

Jamie is a spirited, curious young boy. He was born a full term baby at 40 weeks, by a birthmother who smoke and drank moderately during the pregnancy. A 2009 medical summary indicates that Jamie has Strabismus, as well as minor delays in language and development, but current reports point towards his positive progress. Jamie currently lives with a foster family and has adjusted well. He is currently making strides in his development, and his caretakers say he is at the level of other boys his age. In June 2011, it was noted that his general and fine motor skills are improving, as is his verbal expression. This improvement is especially apparent in the adorable home videos we have of him!  Jamie is an inquisitive and social child, who loves to play with his foster sister. He is waiting for his forever family to bring him home where he can receive the love, care and guidance he needs to thrive!
