Meet Dshyntae! 

Dshyntae is a 17 year old young man with Down syndrome. He is currently residing in New York state, but families in all states will be considered as an adoptive placement. 

Dshyntae is a social guy who loves talking and being with familiar people.  He enjoys school, Diet Pepsi, pillowcases and post-it notes.  His main love is music!  He will happily listen to someone singing or playing the guitar, but also enjoys music on the radio or YouTube videos.  If you really want to make his day, get ready for a dance party with some Michael Jackson or Whitney Houston!  Dshyntae also likes to go for walks to relax in the sunshine.  While he is able to walk independently, he prefers to use his wheelchair for longer trips.  Dshyntae would prefer a home without animals. 

Dshyntae is fed through a Gtube.  While he requires constant supervision, it is noted that he is an excellent sleeper.  At times, he struggles with impulse control and sensory processing issues.   

This special young man needs the love of a forever family, who can help him continue to grow into adulthood.
