Sweet Elinor, born in April of 2014 with Down syndrome and esotropia, enjoys caring for the younger babies by folding towels and by taking their bottles to the sink, one by one. She will also take a tissue and wipe their mouths, all on her own initiative.
Elinor’s caretakers say she is cheerful, active, curious, friendly, and that she has a warm personality. She is well-liked by all of her caretakers and the other children. Elinor is working hard to learn how to do things on her own, such as taking off her shoes and putting on her own clothes. She will even put her shoes in the shoe cabinet after taking them off. Elinor is so proud of herself when she does something on her own!
She loves to be praised and finds the joy in the little things, such as touching the colorful pictures of flowers and small animals that are on the walls. Elinor loves to scribble, stack blocks, and imitate others. She has a strong imitating ability. Elinor can go up and down stairs on her own.
Elinor is a beautiful little girl with a terrific personality. She is newly listed with Madison Adoption Associates and getting good care while she waits. We can’t wait to see which family will be blessed to have her as a daughter!
