Jesse was born in January 2015 and found abandoned when he was about 12 months old. He has been diagnosed with Down Syndrome and post-operative congenital heart disease.

SPECIAL FOCUS CHILD RELEASED TO THE SHARED LIST

When Jesse entered his institute he was able to stand and walk with support. He was in good spirits but unable to speak yet. Orphanage staff thought he was the most handsome boy with Down Syndrome in the institute so he was given a name that means “handsome.” An ultrasound showed he had congenital heart disease (ASD and PFO). He was sent to Shanghai and received surgery for ASD when he was 18 months old. The surgery was believed to be successful.

At the time of his report Jesse was around 27 months old. He was described as being active and restless. He could walk, move flexibly, jump and laughed happily when staff stretched out their arms towards him. Jesse understood simple instructions and could feed himself. He could crawl, walk, use his fingers to pick up small objects, imitate drawing lines, build with blocks and was cooperative when getting dressed. Jesse was able to imitate words and responded when staff would ask him for objects. He was very cute, got along well with others, was fairly extroverted and had a ready smile. Jesse’s favorite activity was playing games with other children and his his favorite toys were cars.
