Teamwork Tuesday~ Kyle

This blue eyed handsome blondie is Kyle, he is 5 years old and will be transferred to an adult mental institution soon if his forever family doesn't find him quick! He is blessed with the extra chromosome and is medically healthy. His profile states he has flat feet (so does a large portion of our population,) and strabismus which is commonly known as "crossed eyes." His eyes look perfect to me, but what do I know? I'm slightly partial to these kids.

Although many of the kids we blog about need to come home to their families, Kyle is in DIRE need of one. At his age he is facing imminent transfer to an adult mental institution. There is a family out there for him, they may just not know about him yet. So please pass  Kyle's profile around and donate if you are able.
