Miss Mirabel is also a real cutie! What a great smile she has Mirabel is 4 now and facing imminent transfer. We’ve had many successful adoptions from this orphanage and region! Please help us share Mirabel’s need for a forever family! Mirabel will remain bedridden for the rest of us her life if she is not adopted.
From her medical records: congenital malformation of the central nervous system, cerebral hernia, hydrocephaly subcompensated, flail legs
From one of our families who visited with her in August 2013: ” We saw Mirabel this morning. She is in the laying down room. The nannies were carrying them outside. She can’t hold her head up, support herself, sit, or stand. It looks like she has no control over her legs at all…flopped to the side when the nannies carried her. She does, however, have good use of her arms. She kept reaching up to try to touch me. I gave her a set of the rings to play with. She was SO happy to have something to play with. She kept smiling at me. I really think that there is a smart, aware little girl in that broken body.”
