It’s that time of year when many of us receive holiday cards and newsletters from friends talking about their children’s activities and accomplishments of the past year. Since Luke is still waiting for his forever family, we thought we’d take this opportunity to brag about him and everything he has been up to this fall!
Luke is seven years old and is in “senior kindergarten” this year, which he really enjoys. He has changed schools and is doing well in his new school where he enjoys being a leader! He can count numbers and read simple words, and he really enjoyed showing our foster care manager his writing skills during her most recent visit.
Perhaps Luke is a budding photographer! He is very curious about cameras and wants to see our manager’s when she comes to take photos of him each month. He also likes his toy cell phone that sings and lights up.
Although Luke’s pronunciation is not that clear, he is quite good at repeating stories and does so with great enthusiasm.
Luke is a very good helper! He helps his foster parents with cleaning and washing dishes and knows to put things back in their place when he is done with them. He is very hospitable and shows kindness by sharing his food with anyone who asks.
Like many children with Down Syndrome, Luke is quite flexible and can bend in ways that are unimaginable to most people! He’s an active boy who loves to run around the neighborhood with his friends.
Luke enjoys entertaining the adults around him by singing and dancing for them! He also enjoys “hamming it up” and taking photos (can you tell?) His favorite song to sing is “Mama Hao” — which means, “Mother is the best in the world”.
Luke’s foster parents are on the neighborhood watch, and Luke goes on rounds with them. As a result, he is very good at meeting and interacting with people and is quite polite! Luke’s foster parents have often said what a smart boy they think he is.
Hasn’t it been a wonderful fall for wonderful Luke? We would love to see what more he can accomplish and how he could thrive even more with the love and attention of a permanent family!
