When she feels wronged, she will run to the nannies and say, “Mama, Mama” and the nannies will comfort her and pat her head and say, “Good girl, don’t worry about it.” She will then run over to the children and continue playing. When she sees other little children with a runny nose, she will help them wipe it and then smile at them.

Down syndrome, severe mental delays, congenital cardiopathy

Tomas is in urgent need of a family!  He is already 7 years old and needs to get HOME.  He has heart disease and recently needed a pacemaker installed.  He can stand a little with a walker but cannot walk. He can sit up on his own. He can only babble and cannot talk. He does smile a little bit at his caregivers. I don’t believe he is able to feed himself. He needs 100% help with all his activities.   Tomas would thrive in a family setting, with access to all the medical care and therapies he really needs!

Listed: July 7, 2013

From a family who met him in 2015:  “Heinrich ran right up to me and asked to go up, and then enjoyed a play session full of jumping. He definitely has a lot of energy, and I was amazed at his gross motor skills. He loved the play area’s rocking horse!”

UPDATE as of June 2015:  Heinrich continues to make great improvements. He is communicating and asked to be picked up. He is strong, happy, and loves attention.

Update as of April 2013:  His development is delayed; he recently started to walk without help, but not yet steady. Emotions are weak, play activity is primitive, throws away toys, turns them around, puts into the mouth, sucks his fingers, makes stereotypic movements with his head, swings.   He’s not yet speaking, and it’s possible he has a hearing delay.  He eats with help, does not yet holds a spoon or the bottle, still it is hard for him to chew a hard food. The level of understanding is low, does not have motivation to make an activity.
