Noah was born in November 2008 and abandoned seven months later on a sidewalk. He was sent to the local hospital while authorities searched for his birth parents. A few days later Noah was diagnosed with Down Syndrome and moved to a local orphanage. He was placed in foster care and currently attends a Little Sisters preschool program through Half The Sky Foundation.

Noah’s adoption paperwork was completed in December 2013 and he is described as active, energetic and happy. They say he is cooperative with companions, enjoys singing and has a ready smile. Noah likes to play games with other children and knows how to share although sometimes he gets a little jealous if another child gets more attention than him. He understands oral instructions and follows directions well.
Noah has had some speech therapy and now pronounces words clearly. He speaks 5-10 word sentences and asks his teacher for help during class if he needs it. He always says “thank you” after receiving help. He likes playing with toys and is able to build a tower and recognize numbers.
At the time of his report Noah was walking with assistance from a walker or by holding on to furniture or an adults hand. He is able to crawl very fast and goes up and down stairs with the help of his teacher. He likes to sing, recite poems and likes to play with toy cars. Noah is able to feed himself his meals and loves to play outside!
I spent a week in China visiting with the staff and children in this orphanage in July 2013 but unfortunately I didn’t get to meet this sweet boy. I am happy to answer any questions about the orphanage and/or their foster care program though. It was very impressive!
