Girl, born Feb 2011
Down syndrome, Cleft Palate, bilateral ear deformity, growth delays, developmental delay
Tesia has a diagnosis of Down Syndrome, but a prospective family needs to be open to the possibility of a different medical diagnosis as Tesia exhibits many characteristics of children who have been diagnosed with Treacher Collins, although TC is not mentioned specifically in her record.
Tesia was found abandoned at around 10 days old. She is a timid, shy and quiet little girl who likes to play with toys especially balls, sand and slides.
Tesia is able to walk and is reported to be toilet trained. She can search for the source of a sound and can make sounds on her own, but did not use words as of the report date. Tesia likes to be cuddled and spoken to. She is waiting for a family of her own who can snuggle with her as they tell her “I love you!”
