An Adoption Assistance Grant for Mateo
Mateo is helping us to celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness Month. In honor of this special time to honor and recognize those with Down Syndrome, we are pleased to announce that we are offering an Adoption Assistance Grant of $2,500 for any family working to bring Mateo home as their son!
Mateo is reportedly a smiling, outgoing, responsible and very loving boy who just celebrated his sixth birthday. During this past year, we have noticed that he has made a lot of progress. Day by day, he is improving his skills, breaking down walls, discovering new things, and overall enjoying his time.
Mateo lives with a foster family in Tongren. His foster mother says he is a smart kid and always takes the opportunity to talk about his merits. She works hard with him in order to improve his daily living skills and independence.
Always with a smile on his face, Mateo likes chatting with people and playing with other kids. Recently, his foster family welcomed a new baby, and Mateo loves taking care of his little foster brother, playing with him, and helping with the housekeeping.
Over the summer, we received this video of Mateo helping to take care of Alejandro. What a good big brother he seems to be!
Mateo is described as a very good pupil who likes talking to his classmates and participating in his classes. Mateo has learned to recognize some simple shapes and some Chinese characters; he can also count to 50 and write down his full name. Here is a video of Mateo counting, following instructions, and doing a little dance:
He really enjoys dancing and singing as well!
Mateo’s bright eyes and magic smile can make you fall in love with him right away. We are hoping that his family will fall in love soon!
Please help Mateo’s family to find him by sharing this blog about his Adoption Assistance grant and any photos of this wonderful boy.
