Welcome
Utah Down Syndrome Foundation

Does a member of your family have Down syndrome? Has your baby been prenatally diagnosed with Down syndrome? Are you the parents of a newborn with Down syndrome? Are you and a family member with Down syndrome moving to Utah? Please contact us for information. We have parent volunteers to help and support you and your family and to answer any questions. 

The UTAH DOWN SYNDROME FOUNDATION brings families together to build a community and help individuals with Down syndrome reach their highest potential. We provide programs and services for parents and families as well as for individuals with the condition. With knowledge and support, you can be your child's best advocate.

Cradle-of-Hope-Adoption.png

 

Cradle of Hope Adoption Center, a nonprofit adoption agency with 28 years of experience, is seeking adoptive homes for Chinese orphans with Down syndrome.  Eligible families can be married couples or single women, ages 30 – 55, and must meet China’s eligibility criteria.
 
We are waiving our entire placement fee for families adopting children with Down Syndrome from China.  Adopting families will still face expenses for homestudy, US immigration approval, travel expenses to China for one two-week trip, etc.
 
If you can open your home and your heart to a Chinese orphan with DS, please contact us for more information.
