Diagnosis: head and facial malformations
Anita has malformations on her head and facial areas. She has seen several doctors for this, but none of them will agree to operate on her. She was born prematurely and lags behind in all aspects of her development. She can sit up independently and enjoys sitting in a walker. She is not yet walking on her own. She recognizes familiar adults and pays close attention to everything going on around her. She’ll hold and manipulate toys when they are given to her to play with. She eats from a spoon and then receives additional nutrition from a bottle. She is beginning to make sounds, but does not have meaningful speech at this time. She has formed a bond with one particular staff member.
We have several additional recent photos and video clips of Anita. In the videos, she is laughing and playing with toys.
