This eight-year-old boy may be shy at first but is full of love inside and is looking for a loving family to help him externalize it. If you want to see Maxwell happiest, play some music and ask him to dance. Through the sounds of the songs he likes, you can always bring a smile out of him. One of his favorite activities is to ride around in the car while listening to his favorite tunes, as the constant movement of the car gives him a feeling of safety.

Maxwell has a diagnosis of Down syndrome, risk of low size, heart disease correction, adenoid hypertrophy and daytime and nighttime enuresis and encopresis. Due to his diagnosis he needs constant attention and support to get through daily tasks such as brushing his teeth and getting dressed. He doesn’t usually speak verbally. Maxwell has a hard time relating to kids his age therefore needs a lot of encouragement on making new friendships and maintaining them. With the constant affection and support of a loving family, Maxwell will exceed his potential and become the wonderful boy he is supposed to.
