Shelbie is a 3.5-year-old sweetie who can sit, stand against the bed rails, and drink water from a bottle. She can make eye contact with people when called and can feed herself biscuits. She is cooperative for diaper changes and likes to play with rattles and stuffed toys. Shelbie laughs happily when someone plays with her and is described by her caretaker as cute and chubby. Shelbie was born with down syndrome and she has delays that are typical to her condition, but also typical delays of a child who is living in an orphanage. Shelbie really needs a family to love on her and provide her with the resources she’ll need to thrive!
