Brain dysplasia; post-operative congenital heart disease
5 year old Lolita is looking for a special family that will be hers forever. She is diagnosed with brain dysplasia and post-operative congenital heart disease. Lolita was abandoned at 4 years of age…can you even imagine? She had a surgery for her CHD before arriving at the orphanage. She can walk alone without help, but her step is a bit abnormal. She is curious and observant of her surroundings.Lolita is reserved, but gets along with her caretakers. When asked something, she will shake her head. Currently she is receiving preschool education in the center. Lolita can feed herself and use the bathroom independently, but her language is delayed. She has trouble with pronunciation and is only saying simple words. She will receive speech training to help her with this. Lolita has fine muscular tension of the limbs, but her motion is fairly flexible. Her fine motor of the upper limbs is poor. She enjoys going for walks outside and building towers with blocks. Lolita is gentle, cute, and quiet. She has a sweet smile. She likes to watch TV, listen to music and she is an easygoing child.
Update 4/2015- Look who is smiling again! From an adoptive family who met her on a visit to her orphanage. Lolita is definetly delayed, but she is walking and her smile has returned!
