Shawn is a precious 4 year old (born July 2012) with Down’s Syndrome.   He came into care when he was 1 month old, and he lives at the Welfare Center that has a partnership with ICC, but he is not directly in ICC care.

A new ICC team mate wrote this about Shawn in Sept 2015:  “Shawn seems like a bright boy and from our short time visiting him he integrated well and seemed content. He was very smiley! A family wanting to adopt a child with Downs Syndrome would be very blessed by Shawn.

A January 2016 update states:
  “Shawn is nearly ready to walk by himself! He loves to move around either by crawling or when holding onto something for support or someone’s hand he can walk. He tried taking a few steps unaided but his balance wasn’t quite there yet.  He looks for things hidden such as when I put my phone under my leg he searched around for it.  He is very eager to engage and play with those around him.”

Shawn is a cute boy who loves to get around.  He crawls all over the place and will stand up and walk when holding onto something or someone!  Most of all, he enjoys his independence when in the baby walker.  While he feeds well from a bottle, he has not yet transitioned to solid food.

Shawn communicates with sounds and gestures but is not yet saying words.  He is very interactive with others and smiles when he sees loved ones.  He loves to reach out and be with other children as well as his care givers.  He is especially fond of hugs and watching TV.
