In honor of Down Syndrome Awareness Month, GWCA’s Sponsored Star for October is Fiona, a precious 3-year-old girl who absolutely rocks her extra chromosome!
Fiona seems to be doing well overall! She knows how to walk and is saying some words. Although her speech is slightly delayed, communication does not seem to be an obstacle for her. She understands instructions from her caregivers such as “sit down, stand up,” and she can point the position of “nose, eyes, and ears” on someone’s face. Fiona is described as being cute and affectionate. She will kiss her caretaker’s face when she is happy.
On the 1st of each month, Great Wall China Adoption will feature one of the kiddos from our Orphanage Partnerships as our monthly “Sponsored Star!” As our Sponsored Star, that child will be provided a $2,000 grant towards their adoption fees. Each of the kiddos selected is a Special Focus child, meaning they have not found their Forever Family yet due to their age or the degree of their needs. Together, we can find loving homes for these amazing kids!
