Boy:  2016

Down syndrome, polysyndactyly

Listed: Jan 2019

Garrett is an adorable little boy, born in November of 2016 with Down syndrome, polysyndactyly (webbed fingers/toes) – 3rd and 4th fingers on both hands and 2nd and 3rd toe on both feet, congenital cardiac malformation – open foramen ovale with preserved chamber function (the foramen ovale is already closed), and motor developmental delays.

Garrett turns from his back to his belly and vice versa. When lying on his belly, he leans on his elbows. Garrett reaches for a toy he is being handed or for hanging objects. He takes two toys, one in each hand, and knocks them together. Garrett is overall a pleasant little guy and individual attention from an adult makes him so happy. He loves to smile back at adults when they are smiling at him. He cries at separation, but quickly calms down. Garrett has syllable-repetition speech. He accepts food from a bottle and is gaining weight. His sleep is calm.
