We met Evelyn!
It never ceases to amaze me how different it is to write an advocacy post after you have met a child! Let me tell you about Evelyn now that we have met her and seen this cuteness in person!
Evelyn is 2. She has Down syndrome and CHD. And she is the cutest, sweetest, silliest little 2 year old girl you could hope to meet!
She is walking by herself and really aced all of our little developmental things we do with little ones. She scribbles and stacks blocks and she is all about the baby puffs! Believe me, she can grab them and get those things to her mouth no problem!
She understands simple commands, though her caregiver pointed out that she also likes to pick and choose which of those commands she actually follows. She is 2, after all.
There was a whole group of little ones in the room with her and the caregivers were singing little songs with them and doing hand motions. She was right in there doing the motions! So, so cute!
Evelyn has a $4,000 grant through Gladney. Please spread the word and let's get this little one home! Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about adopting Evelyn!
