Mandy

Girl, Born 2010

syndactyly of hands and feet, steeple tower head, psychological and motor delay, Congenital heart defect (patent foramen ovale, secondary defect of interatrial septum)

Many will be available in early 2015.

We are so glad to finally be able to relist Mandy! She was born with multiple skeletal anomalies, including fused/webbed hands.

 

The girl is smiling, laughing. She reaches for toys. She walks in baby-jumper.    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.

This region typically waives the 10 day waiting period for children with special needs.   

$382.70 has been donated towards the cost of my adoption!

Janelle

Janelle taggie 2 Janelle 3Girl, Born June 2007

Isn’t Janelle pretty? She was born with CP and struggles some with epilepsy. She is not able to walk on her own, but would such a blessing to any family.

She will remain bed/chair-ridden for life if she is not adopted. More photos available.

From her medical records: microcephaly. Spastic tetraparesis (CP), steady movement
violation. Episyndrome J 80-83, Q 02, J 40.6. Strabismus. ZPMR.

This region typically waives the 10 day waiting period for children with special needs.

Update March 2014:
Janelle is very frail, very tiny. She is about the size of a 6-9 month old, and very pale. She has beautiful reddish light brown hair and eyes that are about the same color. She appears very weak, and doesn’t interact much. They are very concerned about why she is not growing and have her on a special diet. She is clearly a favorite of one of the nannies, who was carrying her the entire time (which is wonderful in terms of mental and emotional health and sensory input, and to decrease issues of psychosocial dwarfism). She does not interact much, but this may be due to her weakened state. She is alert and watches what is happening. She needs a loving mama and daddy to get her the medical care she so desperately needs- and fast.
