These sisters are precious. For those of you who know me, know that I have a soft spot in my heart for kids with Down Syndrome. Our youngest daughter Zinnia has DS. We are blessed. :)

Name: Cecilia G
Profile: Milinda is an active and engaging youngster who loves to give hugs. She is in the second grade and does well in her self-contained classroom, although her outgoing personality has helped her make friends in regular classes in the school. Assisting her friends and teachers around the classroom is what she does best. Last year she even won an award at her school! She is working on becoming more independent and expressing herself; she continues to work on her spoken language abilities as well as learning sign language. Milinda has Down Syndrome and it is not known whether she will be able to live independently as an adult. Younger sister Cecilia loves to play and be silly! She can often be found playing outside on her bike, or coloring her favorite pictures with her friends and sister. She does well in her first grade classroom where her teacher calls her a "wonderful little girl." Her natural curiosity and great memory for details helps Cecilia with her creative projects. She loves one-on-one attention and will reward you with lots of smiles and laughs. Milinda participates in speech and occupational therapies at school, and Cecilia benefits from counseling. These therapies might need to be continued after they have been placed in their adoptive home. The caseworker would like the girls to be adopted by a couple; however, all family types will be considered. The girls need to maintain contact with another sister. Financial assistance may be available for adoption-related services. We only accept inquiries on the sibling pair, who will be placed together. For Colorado children, both home-studied and non-home-studied Colorado families are encouraged to inquire; only home-studied families from other states should do so.

  1. Kari,
    Do you know anything else about these girls? I have tried contacting the agency about them, but have not received a response as of yet. You can e-mail me privately if that would be easier.

    By the way I see you are from Loveland....we live in Ft. Collins
