Girl, Born March 24, 2003
Alisha was born with Penn-Sjogren Syndrome. We do not have any other info indicating why she may be cognitively and physically delayed. She has cognitive delays, and a divergent squint.
As with all children living in these difficult conditions, this child’s cognitive development has regressed significantly since he/she was younger. It is of crucial importance that any family considering the adoption of an older child from the mental institution setting be well prepared for what to expect with regards to how the neglect and lack of adequate medical care and nourishment has affected this child. These children all have TREMENDOUS potential for improvement, and deserve to have a life outside these four walls.
Little Miss Alisha’s eyesight has regressed significantly. She needs a family!
She can’t move by herself but she tries to sit. Her speech is not developed. Mental processes are not formed. Ideation is not developed. Alisha is friendly and quiet. Her emotional world is poor. She needs care constantly.
