Girl, born 2014
Down syndrome

Della is an adorable little girl! She came into care at the approximate age of three. Upon arrival, she couldn’t sit, stand, walk, or speak independently. She could laugh when amused and make sounds like mama. Though she still has typical delays, Della has made huge progress since coming into care! She can make more sounds, knows her name, and can understand simple instructions and carry them out. She puts away her toys after she’s done playing with them and knows how to put away the chairs after a meal, with the guidance of the staff. She can go upstairs and downstairs while holding the handrail, can eat a meal with a spoon, and is cooperative when putting on and taking off clothes, shoes, and socks. At the time her file was prepared, Della was not yet potty trained. Della is said to be an active girl who likes to wiggle her body to music. She likes to play with the other children too. Della is described as quiet and smart. She loves playing with blocks and playing outdoors, especially on the slide. Della is a sweet little girl who loves to smile. She likes to be embraced and touched. It’s clear she has a loving caretaker who has worked hard with her and who encourages her. We can’t wait to see her continue to make big gains in a loving family of her own!

There is a $1,500 agency grant for Della’s adoption with her current adoption agency.

$16.20 has been donated towards the cost of my adoption!

Your gift will serve ALL of the children, as 10% of each Waiting Child Donation is shared with our Voice of Hope fund, as well!
