Boy, age 5
Diagnosis: hydrocephalus-no shunt
Updated 2015: Darren now lives in a group home. He spends a great deal of time left in his crib. Despite that, he is very interactive and responsive. He will reach for toys, manipulate them and rolls over to drop them out of his crib while laughing. He smiles and responds to caregivers talking to him and laughs loudly when tickled. He reaches his arms up to people when they lean over his crib and reach for him. He turns his head to follow voices in the room. He interacts with handing toys in his crib. His hydrocephalus has not been treated and as a result, he can not sit or stand unassisted.
Photos and videos from May 2015 are available.
Because we only have this child’s file for a short time, he will not be able to receive donations until a family is found for him.
