May 2017 report from the adoption agency WACAP – as “Archer”
Archer is an active, and sometimes restless kid whose favorite activity is playing on the slide. His favorite toys are balls, and the little car that he can drive around in. He takes a two hour nap each afternoon, but he’s a pretty light sleeper, according to his nannies. He has a good appetite, and enjoys eating snacks. Archer is diagnosed with Down syndrome. As of May 2016, he knows how to take a toy block out of a cup and has a good command over his thumb and index fingers. He bangs blocks together too. In an update from May 2017, he can now stand and walk independently! He follows simple instructions, and attends preschool at the orphanage. His nannies say that he has quick reactions, but can also be a bit impatient. Archer babbles words like “yiya” and he sometimes tries to imitate his caregiver’s words. This chubby-cheeked little guy deserves to grow up with the love and support of his family.

May 2016 report from the adoption agency CHI (Children’s House International) – as “Winkler”
