Did you ever wonder why March 21 is World Down Syndrome Day?  March 21, or 3/21, signifies the triplication (trisomy) of the 21st chromosome which causes Down Syndrome. Around the world, people are proudly wearing crazy socks and celebrating the joy that people with Down Syndrome bring to the world. Today we would like to shine the spotlight on ten children with Down Syndrome in our programs who are waiting to be chosen for adoption.  Here they are from oldest to youngest:

Birthday Boy Victor

The last time we wrote about Victor (in “V is for Victor“), he was timid and seemed a bit sad.  When a stranger was pointing a camera at him trying to get a good photo, he had a difficult time staying calm and we saw an anxious little boy.  Well, just look at him now, celebrating his fourth birthday right in the midst of all of the other kids at LWB’s Believe in Me School in Changzhi!

Victor’s transformation is great news.  We also have some other great news to share:  Victor is the recipient of an adoption grant of $4,308 through Reece’s Rainbow. Read more.

He overflows with happiness when praised for a job well done. Yes, Julian knows joy. But he doesn’t know the deep love of a permanent, adoptive family.

Julian, now four years old, has been on the shared list for a long time. You’ve met him on this blog several times (“Julian’s Joy,” “Julian’s High Jinks,” and “Julian: Almost Four.”) At the time his file was submitted, he didn’t even walk yet! Now he runs. When the file was prepared, he didn’t speak at all. He’s still a man of few words, but he does call those in his foster family by name.
