Meet Journee from Utah. Journee is 9 years old and has Down syndrome. There are no fees for her adoption. Families from any state can be considered for Journee.
Journee exudes joy when the music is loud, and she can twirl to her heart's content!
One of her favorite tunes is "Can't Stop the Feeling!" by Justin Timberlake, and she also enjoys pop music by Adele, Shawn Mendes, and Rihanna.
Journee enjoys making others laugh, and purple and black are her preferred hues.
Meals, in general, are a time to be celebrated and enjoyed for this girl. In Journee's opinion, ranch dip with veggies is the best snack, and she also likes when meals include bacon, sausage, toast, chips, and potatoes in any form.
Swimming, puzzles, and playing around on her Kindle are a few more activities she likes doing. When looking for a relaxing activity, Journee just might ask for a pair of scissors and a magazine to cut out pieces of paper. Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir have captivated this girl's attention. Peppa Pig, Moana, Frozen, and the movie 'Home' are also well-liked cartoons she likes watching.
This third grader comes home from school excited to show her foster mom the art she made.
