Parker is GWCA’s Sponsored Star for October!

parker-sponsored-starIn honor of Down Syndrome Awareness Month, GWCA’s Sponsored Star for October is Parker, an adorable one year old boy who absolutely rocks his extra chromosome!

Parker can push himself up when he’s lying on his tummy, and can turn over all by himself. Like many children with Down syndrome, Parker is a little bit delayed compared to his peers, however, he is a happy boy who is progressing very well! He can grasp toys and move them from one hand to the other, he’s babbling, and he enjoys imitating the sounds that adults around him make. Parker enjoys listening to music, and often becomes calm, quiet and content when he hears it.

One of GWCA’s matching specialists met Parker when she visited China earlier this year, and would be more than happy to speak to any families that are interested in learning more about him. As our Sponsored Star for October, Parker has a $2,000 grant available towards his adoption fees! If you’re interested in learning more about Parker, visit our photo listing or contact our matching specialists today!

What is a Sponsored Star?

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!

We encourage any families interested in learning more about our Sponsored Star of the Month to visit our China Waiting Child Photo Listing, or contact our China Matching Specialists to learn how you can be matched today! Check back on the first of each month to meet the newest featured child!

His fine motor skills are on par with his peers. Nash is able to tear paper, use his thumbs, etc. Nash is on the shyer side, but is definitely an active two year old. He loves playing with toys and jamming out to some awesome music!
