Look at those big beautiful eyes! Can you see her? She is worthy! She needs a loving family!

Zalynn is a waiting child that may be available for international adoption.

Zalynn lived with her birth family until after her 4th birthday. Her gross motor skills are well developed. She walks independently, runs, grabs a ball with both hands, kicks a ball, climbs and descends stairs with a railing support and jumps.

Her fine motor skills are delayed. She can cut with scissors, but cannot accurately follow lines to cut items out. She holds a pencil and can draw a circle. She’s learning to trace her hand. She feeds herself and drinks from an open cup. She can get undressed by herself and can put her socks and shoes on independently. She requires assistance with other dressing tasks at this time. 

She responds to her name, follows simple instructions, and can indicate when she’s hungry. Her expressive speech is delayed, but she can communicate using a few simple words. She plays with toys and interacts with adults and other children. She has pretend play skills. She willingly participates in group activities with other children.

Diagnosis: Down syndrome. Congenital heart malformation – interventricular septal defect; subsystemic pulmonary hypertension; abnormal superior vena cava: surgically corrected. Dysplasia of the right kidney. Atopic dermatitis. Divergent concomitant strabismus. Protein-energy malnutrition.

Photos and videos are available.

She is eligible for a $5000 grant through Reese’s Rainbow!

Would you please pray that God provides a family for this child?

Would you pray that God gives this family the courage and strength to honor His calling?

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. – James 1:27 NIV
