Girl, Born August 2012
Down syndrome, cataracts
Look at this sweet chunk! Janie was born in August of 2012 and has Down syndrome. Her heart is healthy, but she has been diagnosed with cataracts. Janie is a sweet, quiet girl who loves to eat and sleep. She is interested in her environment and smiles and babbles when someone gives her attention. Janie can roll over on her own and is well loved by her caretakers.
Update February 2014: Janie is doing well. She is an active girl who responds to music with clapping and rhythmic babbling. She likes playing in her playpen, too. Janie has received a crystalline lens implant in her right eye and now responds to light. She is being monitored by her doctors for progress with her vision and to decide how to treat her left eye.
