Born February 2012 * Down Syndrome * had a one on one “granny” * likes outside and nature * sweet and lovable *
Cutie pie Nathaniel is 3 years old, and was born in August 2012. He lives at the Welfare Center that has a partnership with ICC but he is not directly in ICC care.
When Nathaniel entered into care, he was estimated to be 6 months old. His file says “he could not adapt well, always cried and would not like to sit or be quiet.” He was most likely grieving the loss of his first family. The welfare center enrolled him the Grandmother Plan where Nathaniel was paired up with a very special Grandmother who cared and loved on him.
This one-on-one doting by his grandmother helped Nathaniel reach his milestones. He can walk, can call “granny” if happy, likes being outside and explore nature. While outside he likes pointing to the sky with one hand!
Nathaniel has good balance, can understand simple directions, can imitate well, likes being close to an adult and being accompanied by the caregiver. He can be timid, and his caregivers say he is becoming more “bright” and his cognition ability is good.
This sweet, lovable boy needs a family to help him reach all of his potential. He sounds like a gem!
