Billy is three years old. He was abandoned by the side of the road when he was about three months old. He was born with a heart defect (Complete Atrial Ventricular Canal defect, also known as CAVC, which means there was a large hole in the wall between the right and left sides of his heart) and had corrective surgery when he was 5 months old. He had a good result from the surgery but developed a common complication: ventricular tachycardia, a short circuit of the heart’s electrical system which is being treated with medication. According to a US cardiologist who reviewed Billy’s file, the tachycardia could be quite benign or he may need additional surgery.
According to the orphanage, Billy is a nice boy who gets along well with other children. His language skills are age appropriate and his physical health is comparable to other children. Billy can get dressed and undressed by himself, goes up and down stairs, knows his body parts, and can hold a pen and scribble. Can Billy be the son you’ve been searching for?
