TracyGirl, born November 2006
Congenital heart defect

Tracy is a precious 5 year old girl that has been diagnosed with complex CHD. In 2011, she was hospitalized due to cerebral infarction. Tracy has average motor skills and intelligence development. Due to her condition, her hands, feet, and lips turn purple sometimes. At the age of 1 year, Tracy could roll over, hold her head up, and make sounds of yiyi and yaya. At 2 years of age, she could sit alone and shake the toy with her hands. She could understand “No” and would stop what she was doing. At age 3, Tracy would try to stand alone, could imitate sounds, and could respond to her name. At 4 years, she could say aunt and uncle. Now, Tracy can stand alone for a moment and can walk for a short distance with support. She can also understand the basics of what adults are saying.

Tracy is described as a quiet and sensible child who has a close relationship with her caretakers.
