Janie is a cute little girl who likes to smile and be with her caretaker. She gets along well with the other children in her room and loves to ride the horse toy and play with toys that make sounds. Janie has good gross and fine motor skills and can say simple words. Janie was sitting independently by 15 months of age, crawling at 18 months, standing with support at 20 months, and was walking with support at the time her file was prepared. Janie was born with down syndrome and a congenital heart defect- ASD with PH. She had surgery in September of 2016 to repair her ASD. She had pneumonia at one point and now has trouble with breathing when she gets colds in the winter- medication seems to help with this. Janie is waiting for her forever family to see her and know she is their daughter. Could that be your family?
