Down syndrome, CHD (post-op)

Listed: March 2017

Catherine is a sensitive little girl who gazes thoughtfully at people when they talk to her. When her caregiver gently touches her on the head, she will call “mama” and smile. Catherine is diagnosed with Down syndrome, and she also had surgery for a heart defect in February 2016. As of October 2016 she could roll over easily and hold herself up when lying on her stomach. When lying on her back she would grab her feet to roll around and play. Her caregivers play a game of catch with her by tossing a pillow back and forth, and she grins gleefully when they tease her. She started babbling at six months old, and at a year and half she could say “mama.” Her favorite toys are the ones that make music! Catherine needs a caring family to help her grow and develop.

The agency who currently holds Catherine’s file is offering a $4000 grant.

Ruthie will be two in just a few weeks and it sounds like she is so loved by her nannies!

Listed: July 2016

Ruthie is lively, lovely and restless who loves laughing and crawling everywhere. She can grasp the toy trolley and push it forward and also turn to look at nanny from time to time, because she wants to know if she is being watched; if the nanny is looking at her, she will raise her hands very happily and make a bye gesture or push the toy trolley more quickly; sometimes, she would fall down, but as soon as the nanny hugs her and comforts her, she would laugh immediately. She likes listening to music, and she can imitate the actions of clapping hands, shaking head and also will laugh whenever hearing the familiar children’s song. She cannot sit down for a long time, and she likes climbing onto the table top. Every time, when the nanny puts her onto the chair, she would climb onto the table top while the nanny is not looking at her and giggles to express that she has climbed onto and show her great ability.

Jaya

JayaGirl, born 2014
PRC
Down syndrome, congenital heart defect

Listed: Nov 2015

Jaya is an adorable little girl with a sweet face!  During her first year of life, her growth was delayed in comparison to same-age peers. Her caregivers describe her as introverted and she prefers quiet time. She loves being cuddled by her favorite caregiver, and can distinguish her from other caregivers who are less familiar to her. She can hold up her head while lying on her stomach, although she cannot yet crawl or sit upright. She can babble sounds like “nai nai” and her caregivers describe her as easy to smile! She can be very attentive to where she can follow the direction of sounds and voices, and can visually follow moving toys—she’ll even reach out grab toys nearby. WACAP staff met with her in May of 2015 and reported that she was relaxed and had a good connection with her caregiver; she makes good eye contact when interacting with others! She has soft muscle tone and needs extra support of her head and neck when being held. We have several updated photos and videos from our trip for interested families!

Agency staff met with him in May 2015 and we have updated photos and videos for interested families! This current agency also has a grant available to families who qualify to assist with the cost of this adoption.
