Listed: May 2018
This little girl is pure happiness! Betsy enjoys playing with toys, looking at picture books, and she especially loves outdoor activities. Her favorite toys are rubber balls she can throw, though she doesn’t really aim where she throws them yet! She has a good appetite and can feed herself with a spoon. Betsy has Down syndrome, and her medical notes a history of elevated liver enzymes (ALT). She also has a burn scar on her left leg and a birthmark on her right leg. She can walk, go up and down stairs, and stand on one foot for several seconds! She will verbally express her needs as well as use sign language when asking for things. Her fine motor skills are developing well; she can pour water back and forth without spilling it, stack eight blocks and put on her shoes! She can say several simple words such as dad, sister, bye, and aunt and imitates other words as well. Her greatest need is for a family to step forward for her and show her a wonderful childhood.
Betsy’s agency has a $5000 grant, available to families who qualify, to assist with the cost of this adoption.
*** I am eligible for an additional $5,000 Grant! Through 2020, children with Down syndrome ages 6-9 are eligible for a $5000 Older Child Grant! ***
