Patient And Enthusiastic Caregiver In Search Of A Down's Syndrome Buddy
Two of the best years of my life were spent caring one on one with a 4-5-year-old with Down Syndrome. She was my hallway buddy every Sunday as I was managing our Sunday school halls for about 4 hours each week. When things slowed down, we would count and read together, stop into classrooms to brighten everyone's day and spin in circles until we would be too dizzy to stand. This sweet girl would be my special helper to set out snacks, take notes, and ultimately have the best day of our week! I learned so much throughout those 2 years, one thing being that I would love to adopt a child with Down Syndrome at some point in my life. I am patient, loving, caring, responsible, firm when necessary, confident in decision making, and am fast to take action. I absolutely love all ages, and would be happy to consider any age to care for. I am however looking for a teen or young adult for the purpose of learning more about what it may be like long term in the future when we do decide to adopt.
