Update January 2019: Andre’s family is coming! Support the Chapman family HERE! Andre has received a $15,000 Older Child Grant.
In this series, each Friday, I want to share a different child with you who is available for adoption and listed through the adoption advocacy website Reece’s Rainbow. All the kids who are listed on RR from Sarah’s Covenant Homes, India, the focus of my previous posts, have been posted about, so now I am focusing on 1 or 2 kids or a sibling group listed on the site each Friday going forward. When more SCH kids are listed, I’ll continue to feature them!
Please note, names used on RR are usually not the childrens’ real names, and their real names will only be shared with seriously interested families in order to protect their identity.
Today’s first featured ‘Find Me Friday’ kid is: Andre! Let’s find his family! Andre was born in January of 2006, lives in an Asian country, and is waiting for his family to find him. He is eligible to be adopted by single moms!
I am eligible for a $15,000 Older Child Grant! For more information, email email@example.com
PD: Andre sits in an office chair looking at the camera, w/ 1 arm on the armrest & the other making a peace sign! He has a dark brown brush cut & beautiful, expressive brown almond-shaped eyes.
Medical About Andre
Andre was born with Down Syndrome. He has no other medical needs.
According to his file, Andre could not go to outside school, so they arranged for him to go to the orphanage classroom every day, where he was described as obedient. Even though his learning is different from a child without a disability, the teachers like him very much.
More Info About Andre
As a younger kiddo (his file is 4 years old), Andre was said to like to be held and teased, liking to play with others. Andre is said to like to watch TV, play blocks, and play outside. He also likes to listen to music, is curious, and likes taking baths. This precious one is said to have good personal hygiene; if his hands are dirty, he will wash them and his face all by himself. He can put on and take off simple clothes such as pants, shoes, and socks, and can make his bed.
From a family who met him last year:
“My daughter lived with him in the same swi for 9 years. They were best friends. My family wants him to find his family. He was her best friend. She has not forgotten him and asks about him all the time. I know many of you may not know me, but if you knew my daughter, you could see how far she has come since adoption. She is amazing. She is the sweetest most caring little girl anyone could ever know. I know this little boy has to be the same way. They had the same caregivers and shared many things. He only has a little over a year to find his family before he ages out.”
The odds are long, but Andre has a chance yet of finding his family! Additional photos are available from his adoption agency.
