Updated March 2016:
She is doing really well and making good progress in her development. She is facing transition to the institution in the fall. She doesn’t deserve a life in the institution. It weighs heavily on the orphanage director’s mind to have her moved out to the institution instead of a family.
She was born with multiple skeletal anomalies, including fused/webbed hands. As a cautionary disclosure, Mandy does appear to have Apert syndrome.
The girl is smiling, laughing. Doctors consider that surgery may help to separate her fingers on the hands. They give a positive prognosis regarding her mental development. More photos are available.
