Jasper, born in July of 2015, is an adorable little boy who sure loves to drum! He is sweet, active, and funny and is said to love to play. His favorite toys are brightly colored balls and toys that make musical sounds.
Jasper was born with Down syndrome, undescended testicles, and congenital heart disease – TOF and PFO. His first stage heart surgery is complete and was successful.
Jasper has been progressing in his development and is receiving great care, in part to the organization One Sky.
Jasper likes when his caretakers tease him in a loving way and will flash them his huge smile in return. He can understand his caretaker’s facial expressions and responds accordingly. Jasper likes to play interactive games with his caretakers, such as peek-a-boo and will laugh loudly while doing so. He is very familiar with his name and will turn around and seek the sound source when called.
He can sit independently and crawl around to look at himself in the mirror and, as of April of 2018, he was taking his first steps!
Jasper lights up a room, that is for sure. We can’t wait to see what lucky family’s life is going to be lit up by this waiting treasure too!
