Sophia A. 9HA
Date of Birth: October 2009
Look how beautiful she has grown!! Significant cleft lip and palate, most likely FAS or prenatal drug use as well.
UPDATE SEP 2011: Sophia has what they are calling “an affection of the brain.” She is almost completely blind and deaf. One foot is deformed. She only has one hand. Our coordinator was told the child has many other “severe impairments” and does not have a promising prognosis (by Russian standards, we all know that to be quite different if she had adequate medical care and a loving familiy!). Most likely hydrocephaly as well.
Sophia’s grant of 4013.00 has been gifted to Mercy.
