A few months ago, I posted about a little girl named Rosie. I had seen her on the Down syndrome adoption FB group, and was simply taken with her. She was precious in every way and I was surprised that a family hadn’t already come forward for her. She continued to wait and I began to wonder if maybe her family was out there, somewhere… they just needed a little help finding each other.
With that prayer tucked in my heart, I posted about her here and with your help, spreading the word about this precious little girl, her forever family found her right away. Their family’s story is a very special one – with some incredible connections between Rosie and her new mama – and I was deeply grateful to have been able to play a small part. They are now at work to complete their dossier and hope to have her home early next year.
Makes my heart so very happy.
Well, today I want to share another little one who is also waiting for a forever family. I first saw his little lily pad picture in April and figured his forever family would find him quickly. In May, I even wondered if *we* might be his forever family. (Honestly, since bringing Clementine home, I would be honored to be mama to another little one with Down syndrome). But he’s not ours.
So, with a prayer that this little love’s family is out there and just needs a little help finding him, here is Scout. He is one year old, has a special need of Down syndrome and has the most kissable little duck lips I ever did see.
Lovely Scout is a clever and lovely little baby! At 6 months Scout had no problems adapting to his home and surroundings. He loved lying on a mat and grasping his toys to shake with his little hands! When his name is called, Scout would adorably turn to look in the direction of the noise.
At 7 and 8 months, Scout’s abilities were increasing every day. Scout loves playing with his friends and with his toys. Scout loves to play outside in the sunshine and having rocking chair competitions with his friends! Scout’s favorite toys play sounds and music and he loves listening to stories!
Scout needs a family who will continue to shower him with love and excite him with music and learning!
