Cory has been busy learning so many new things! Sweet Cory is a gentle and friendly boy. He loves to play. Some of his favorite things are books, blocks, and balls. Cory was born with Down syndrome and has a repaired heart defect. In the last year Cory has had the great benefit of living with a foster family and attending a special preschool. This has given him the opportunity to learn so much more than he might have in an institutional setting. Recently he even had the chance to do a little cooking – complete with Chef’s hat! Cory has made so much progress in his development this year, we can only image the things he will do in a family of his own!
