Boy, born January 2011
post-operative CHD; Down Syndrome
Shawn is spunky. He runs faster than you can follow and he’s always grabbing at whatever catches his interest. He’s got a jolly laugh. He’s not content with just looking. He has to feel with his own two hands.
Shawn was abandoned at the age of seven months old. He has lived in an orphanage ever since. Shawn is active and bright, and loves playing with teachers and other children. When the teacher asks “Is Shawn here?” he will raise his hand and come running over for a hug. Shawn is a people-pleaser, and is happiest when he is being praised. He loves helping to clean up, and always follows the rules.
