Everly | Age 4 | Adoption Grant | Shared List

Updated: Apr 10

Everly is a sweet 3 year old girl born Nov 2016 who is affectionate and has an infectious giggle!  She has Down Syndrome which has delayed her development.  Over the last 4 months, Everly has made some significant improvements in her social and physical development.  ICC is so proud of the progress she is making with the help of her loving ICC family.

Everly can roll over independently, and crawls quickly when motivated!  She is able to get up into standing position happily, and enjoys cruising around furniture.  She has started walking with carer's holding both of her hands.  She LOVES this!  She can sit unsupported, and enjoys watching bubbles being blown!

This sunshine girl enjoys hugs and the company of others!  She loves to play hand games with people and gives kisses on the cheek!  She loves receiving kisses too!  Everly is part of family style care where she has 5 consistent caregivers, and lives with 8 other children all under the age of 4.

Everly has therapy sessions two times per week where she has opportunities to work on her development through play!  She makes sounds to communicate and enjoys face to face time with others.  She has not verbalized with simple words yet, but she enjoys connecting with people and has become a sociable little girls in the last few months. Our hope is that Everly will have a forever family very soon who will be blessed by her! Everly has an adoption account on Reece's Rainbow where funds are raised for her adoption, and she may be eligible for additional grants through various adoption agencies.  Madison Adoption Associates previously offered $1500 towards her adoption fees. Everly is on the Shared List.  Please contact Erin Schmidt at for Everly's identifying information if you wish to have your agency locate her file.
