We have received an update for darling Linus. His March 26, 2020 update says the Linus measurements are height 84cm, weight 11.5kg, head size 46.5cm, chest size 48cm, foot length 13cm, teeth 18. He can walk very well, can run, can climb the stairs and can climb onto the low sofa. He can say “Dad”, “Sister”, “Twitter”, “ah”, “oh”. He is lively and cheerful and occasionally stubborn. He doesn’t like strangers holding and touching him. When he isn’t happy with toys he will lose his temper and shout “ah” and sometimes he will throw the toys aside. Check out these cute videos of him!
Who wouldn’t like Linus?! This little guy has been doing very well with his foster family. He has Down Syndrome but no other heart or other issues. His foster family says that at the age of 1.5 years, Linus could walk with holding things, could walk for one or two steps without holding, could speak one or two words, such as “baba, ajie”, not clearly. He was very attached to uncle. When he saw the uncle, he asked him for hug, also kissed him, and made his face full of saliva. When the uncle took him to play outdoors, he could call “yiya” happily. He was afraid of strangers. If the stranger hugged him, he cried loudly after a while if not seeing foster mom or uncle. At 1 year and 9months old, he still cannot walk alone, can walk when the adult holds his hand, can walk for steps without holding. He does not have much progress on language, just says one or two words, such as “baba, ajie”. He is very naughty, likes throwing things, throw something he does not know how to play with. He can understand the adult’s simple instructions.
Linus sounds like a smart, lively little boy. Won’t you consider him?
