Quinn is an adorable little girl from China that just turned 3 years old! Quinn has Down’s Syndrome and is doing quite well. One of our GWCA staff members met Quinn when she visited China earlier this year and she would be happy to speak with any interested family about Quinn!
Quinn has been described by caregivers as clever, introverted, cute and energetic. Quinn lives in an imitation family on the orphanage grounds, which is like a foster family, so she is receiving more one-on-one attention than some other children.
Quinn can use her hands to hold small objects, such as sticks, books, spoons, etc. Quinn can pass toys between both of her hands and can use hands to support herself. When Quinn is sitting up the child has good balance and can change her position freely. Quinn can crawl, she can stand up by herself and is learning to walk. Quinn likes to walk around using small chairs and stools to help her balance.
Like many children with Down’s Syndrome, Quinn’s language abilities are delayed compared to other children her age without Down’s Syndrome. However, Quinn can say words like “ma ma,” “ba ba,” and she imitates what adults and children around her are saying.
Quinn enjoys listening to music, looking at picture books and dancing. Quinn can color on paper and play with puzzles. Quinn is clearly a very curious little girl and always seems to want to figure out how things work.
Walker is a sweet little boy from China that is 3 years old. Walker has a VSD (CHD) and he has microtia of his left ear, which means his ear is a bit malformed and he might not be able to hear as well out of it, but other than that he seems to be doing well. Walker can speak multi-word sentences and he can understand what others are saying to him. He can follow instructions given to him by adults. Walker can walk and go up and down stairs by himself. He has some self-care skills like taking off his clothes. His caretakers describe him as outgoing, kind and full of laughter.
