Would you look at these glowing almond eyes!? Derek reminds me so much of Reece! Derek is diagnosed with Down syndrome and congenital heart disease. He lives in a foster family on the grounds of the orphanage and participates in the Little Sister program. Derek is described as outgoing, extroverted, and active. He enjoys school and enters the classroom every morning with a smile as he greets the teacher and other children. He loves to help his teacher as well as the children who are not mobile. Derek enjoys sports and does well in running and kicking and passing the ball. He enjoys drawing, dancing, singing, and playing games. An orphanage project team visited with Derek last summer.
