Warrior Wednesday - Marty #6-7

I would like to introduce you to Marty. He is one of my all-time favorites who is still waiting for a family to call his own.Marty will be 10 years old in 2012 and has already been transferred to an institution.

Here is a brief description of him:

Marty has Down syndrome and at the age of 5 months old was given a diagnosis of CP based on his delayed motor development and horizontal nystagmus (both of these things are common in children with Down syndrome). He is described as a quiet and even-tempered child who has adapted quickly to the routine and daily schedule at the institution. He is able to walk independently. He assists with dressing and undressing himself and is learning to feed himself as well. He goes to the toilet when reminded to do so by the staff. He is not yet speaking but demonstrates understanding and follows basic requests.He plays with other children and interacts well with adults. He responds to his name and loves attention from the caregivers. He has a special bond with one specific care giver. He loves to play with toys and shows a preference for stuffed animals.

Please consider donating to Marty or the many other older children that are available through Reece's Rainbow. The season's focus has been on the 0-5 children with Down Syndrome but, nearing the end of the year, I would like to give some focus to the older children as well. They are all well deserving of a family to call their own.

Dear Lord please watch over the older children and let them know that they are loved by You. Walk alongside them while they continue to wait for their family. Lead their family to them so that they may know that belonging and love of a family.In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.
