Ella #

ella7 ella 01Ella, is a precious 7 year old who desperately needs a family. Ella has poly-malformative syndrome; Infantile cerebral palsy – spastic quadric paresis to severe degree; Symptomatic epilepsy; Pseudo-bulbar paresis; Impossible gait; Cleft lip and cleft palate; Congenital cardiac malformation – intervalvular defect, hemodynamically insignificant; Delay in the neuro-psychical development.

Ella doesn’t walk, doesn’t talk, and eats through a tube. The correction of the cleft lip and palate is not finished. When talked to, she turns her head to the direction of the sound. She is put in a special verticalizer for longer periods of time. She holds up a toy put in her hand and manipulates with it for a short time. She reaches out to a hanging toy if it has attracted her interest; she pats it and shakes it. Ella pronounces quiet vowels sometimes to express positive emotions. She demonstrates emotional reactions with non-verbal means. She follows the movements of the adult with a look and by turning her head and makes long eye contact. She smiles when talked to and to tactile stimulation on her hands and cheeks, but only to some adults.

More photos of sweet Ella available.

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.
