Waiting Child Spotlight: Leta

December 9, 2018 Children Who Wait 0 Comments

Leta is a precious little girl, born in April of 2016 with Down syndrome. Leta can sit, crawl, walk, play clapping hand games, and pick up small objects with her fingers. She likes to play with toy drums, rattles, and the toy piano. If Leta hears music, she will be happy and shake her body to the beat. If another child takes her toys, Leta will hide from them and find another toy to play with instead of crying. She is quiet, obedient, and has a beautiful smile.



Leta makes one syllable sounds and responds to others asking for her toys or food. She likes snuggling and hugs from her caregivers. Leta is a good eater and is not picky. She does have a red birthmark on her left arm. Don’t miss Leta’s video below from this past August!

There is a $1,500 agency grant for Leta’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. She also has an account on Reece’s Rainbow, where she goes by Delia.
