Knox, born in January 2016, is an adorable little boy with Down syndrome. He was placed in a foster family at just six months old and gets along well with all members of the family, especially his foster mom.
Knox feeds himself and sits independently. He can follow simple instructions and sit, crawl, and stand independently. He claps his hands when he sees his friends coming and likes to wave goodbye too. He vocalizes and says a few simple words, such as mom and dad.
Knox is described by his caretakers as active, chubby, and adaptable. He smiles when praised, likes to be held, enjoys listening to stories, and likes to ask for hugs from people who are familiar to him.
We can’t wait to see this little guy continue to grow in a forever family of his own!
There is a $1,500 agency grant for Knox’s adoption with Madison Adoption Associates. Other grants may be available based on the adoptive family’s circumstances. Agency grants are awarded as agency fee reductions. MAA also partners with the Brittany’s Hope Foundation for matching grants, which are given out twice a year (January and July) and to families that are officially matched with a child. Knox also has a new Reece’s Rainbow account here.
Kate is a beautiful little girl born in June of 2016 with Down syndrome. At four months of age, she was placed in a foster home, where she grew stronger and became close with each member of the family. She is reported to be very close with her foster mother who reports that she is doing very well.
Kate can sit and crawl independently. At the time her file was prepared, she could stand for 10 minutes with support and was starting to take a few steps. She can pick up and feed herself small finger foods, bang blocks together, and understand what “no” means.
Kate likes to look at her reflection in the mirror and pat her reflection. Her favorite people are her foster mother and her teacher, both of who absolutely adore her. She likes to listen to stories and she is a good sleeper at night.
We hope Kate will find her forever family soon!
