Milo {Taiwan}

One precious little guy that stole our hearts at the very first glance... Meet Milo.



It’s not every Superkids trip that we get to meet such a little one. Just days before we met him, Milo celebrated his first birthday! His fluffy brown hair, button nose, chocolate colored eyes, and that precious little grin... Oh so tiny and amazing! Milo is even more special as he has something extra, an extra 21st chromosome. Down syndrome.

Little Milo can crawl, sit independently, pull himself up and has even started to cruise along where he pulled himself up. He was so curious about the camera that he pulled himself up along the wooden crib filled with toys to get just a little closer and then stretched his arm out. One very precious moment that was captured forever. 



He is developing a special bond with his nanny. It was sweet to experience their relationship as Milo would clap along and share his little grin as she sang patty cake and helped him bring his hands together to clap. When his hands were not clapping he enjoyed chewing on his little fingers.



Many giggles were shared when the big yellow yoga ball was brought out. Both Milo and another young boy patted the ball to feel the vibration. He did his best to hug this big yellow ball even though it was truly larger than him. All while showing how strong he was to stand alone with arms stretched out. 



So many precious moments to be shared, could you be the family Milo awaits? The family to come alongside him as he journeys through life. As he shows his abilities and proves that his diagnosis of Down syndrome does not define him.

Milo has a $4,000 grant for his adoption through Gladney.
