Teamwork Tuesday ~ Quinten

This week we are all blogging about sweet Quinten. He is 2 1/2 years old with grey eyes and his profile notes he has red hair, looks more like a strawberry blonde to me. Not that it matters, he would be cute with any color hair. His profile also says he is noisy and active. The current diagnosis is Down syndrome, delayed development, protein-calorie deficiency and non malignant growth.

I have 2 boys and I'm not sure if I have any photos of them like the photo of Quinten here. My boys are way too active and rambunctious and that's the way it should be. Unfortunately, Quinten doesn't have a picture like that because he is stuck in an orphanage. An orphanage with other orphans that all long to have a mama and daddy come get them. Can you see Quinten playing in your backyard? Could he be your baby boy? If not, you might know his mama. Please share his profile so his family can find him. Quinten
