Girl, born 2009
microcephaly; cerebral palsy – spastic quadriparesis; Congenital heart malformation, severe developmental delays
Sweet Gabby has some significant needs. Gabby was at one time declared unfit for travel by medical professionals. A family would need to be prepared for that possibility.
The agency has additional information and videos available for inquiring families.
From a family who has met her: I have met this child and reviewed all of her medical records. I’ve spoken at length to the director (who is a doctor) about her needs. I have touched her and spoken to her and prayed over her. I’ve written an accurate description of her here, if you’d like to accurately reflect her needs. She is completely unresponsive to touch and voices. It sounds cruel, but the reality is that all she does is breathe. She did not move the entire time I was in the room. There was no reaction at all to my touch. Her eyes fluttered, but I honestly think it was involuntary eye movement. I am not a doctor and I would LOVE to be wrong. But US doctors have looked at her brain scans and said that she does not have a brain”.
Because we only have this child’s file for a short time, she will not be able to receive donations until a family is found for her.
