Meet Kylan from Texas. Kylan is 4 years old and has Down syndrome. Kylan is a very sweet little boy. He is very affectionate and he is constantly happy, despite all of the obstacles he has overcome at such a young age. Kylan loves being around people and he warms up to strangers easily. He is now able to sit alone and stand with assistance, but is not able to walk. He has very poor eyesight and will first use his hands to touch his caregivers’ faces when he is picked up. When he recognizes who is holding him, Kylan will smile and laugh. He also loves to play with his toys. Kylan has a history of seizures; however he was recently placed on a new diet that has dramatically reduced his occurrence of seizures. Kylan is fed through a feeding tube. His resilience and constant joy in learning about the world around him has caused everybody who comes in contact with Kylan to fall in love with him immediately.
There are NO fees for Kylan’s adoption, and the adoptive family will receive a monthly subsidy for him until the age of 18 or 21 (depending on TX statutes).
