Listed: Oct 6, 2016

Tina is a 9 year old girl who is a very cheerful, active, sociable and persistent child who easily shows her emotions. She is a bit shy upon meeting new people, but when she feels like trust has been established, she is playful and affectionate. She has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy and spastic paraparesis (muscular rigidity predominantly in the legs), strabismus and a speech developmental delay.

She has a significant gap in her development affecting her most in the area of her motor skills. Her cognitive and speech abilities have also been affected due to the difficulty she has abstracting and understanding information. She is participative and cooperative. She is interested in expressing and sharing her desires, needs and concerns. Tina’s attention-concentration span is short, which means she needs constant monitoring so that she will appropriately complete her activities. She is capable of going up stairs, running, and jumping with both feet.

Esme

EsmeGirl, born March 2009  (previously listed as Victoria)
CO-1

Listed: Feb 4, 2015

Esme’s diagnosis was previously reported as Down syndrome, but it appears that is incorrect according to her file.

The real diagnosis is Ritscher–Schinzel 3C syndrome. It is a rare condition, whose symptoms include heart defects, cerebellar hypoplasia, and cranial dysmorphism. The report also states that when she was 15 months old she had a surgery to correct a congenital heart defect (cardiopathy). In April 2013 she had a correction of her AV fistula in her right wrist. In July 2013 she had a correction of her blocked tear duct. She has been treated for asthma.

Sweet Esme is 5 years old; she loves to play with dolls. She is a sweet girl who is kind, affectionate, funny, and lovable. She has been living in a foster home since she was 2-months-old, and is very affectionate with her foster family. She loves playing with her foster siblings, and gets along very well with the children closest to her age. Her foster mother describes her as a happy, obedient, sociable child, and they enjoy having her in their home.

Because Esme has Syndrome 3C, a condition that is characterized by cardiac malformations, cerebellar hypoplasia, and cranial dysmorphism (3C’s), her development is not up to age level. She has been going to therapy to develop her speech skills. She also has Enuresis, which affects her bladder and urination control.

Esme interacts well with other children and loves to watch TV and play. She can eat, brush her teeth, and dress herself independently. She loves doing her homework and schoolwork, and can concentrate on a task or an activity. She is an extremely outgoing child, who is respectful and always follows directions.

Esme is looking for a forever family that will provide her with love and affection, kindness and guidance. She will bring lots of laughter, many smiles, and tons of hugs to your home!
