Four-year-old Colt is a sweet and loving little boy. He’s a big fan of smiling, snuggling and playing with others! He’s also known for being a jokester with his caregivers. Colt needs a loving, permanent family who will give him the support and care he needs to thrive.
When Colt came into care at two months old, he was diagnosed with Down syndrome, an umbilical hernia and microcytic anemia. Now, he’s healthy and strong enough to do the same activities as other children in his care center. He has developmental delays, and he doesn’t use words to speak. But he understands his caregivers and often follows their instructions. He loves to babble when he interacts with others!
One of his favorite things to do is play with toys – especially colorful ones that make sounds. Colt also enjoys listening to music, watching cartoons and playing with balls.
When Colt meets someone new, he’s often shy and quiet. But with enough time, his kind, loving and gentle personality will come through!
The best fit for Colt is a loving, permanent family with knowledge of or a willingness to learn about Down syndrome. They should also have access to excellent medical care and special education resources.
