Little Diane has Cornelia de Lange syndrome, which is also referred to as “Babydoll Syndrome.” This has been described as a syndrome that limits how her brain and body grows. She will always be mentally delayed, and very small in stature. It has also affected her hearing.
From a family who met her in Nov 2011: In spite of her delays, she is keenly aware that some of her friends are going home with their mommies … and she wants one. She would cling to me and cry when I brought my daughter back to the groupa. She has the LONGEST eyelashes I’ve ever seen in my life. She loves music and dancing. She’s got a very gentle personality.
Diane’s grant of $1143.00 has been gifted to Mirabel.
