Rosemary was born in January 2008 and found abandoned when she was 3 years old. She has been diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy.
AGENCY SPECIFIC PARTNERSHIP CHILD
When Rosemary entered her institute she was unable to stand, sit or walk. Her head and back were curved and her muscular tension was quite high. She couldn’t communicate in a typical way. At the time her adoption report was written she was 9 years old. The orphanage reported that she still could not walk, stand or sit, and lies down most of the day or sits in hand-made armchair. Neither of her hands can hold objects so she cannot eat or drink independently. She can understand what is said to her but cannot communicate other than a few simple words. Sometimes she can respond with an “ah” to people calling her name. She loves to smile and will usually smile when spoken to, and can express her demands to caretakers. She has difficulty swallowing large-sized food and mainly eats vegetable soup with rice. Rosemary relies on her foster grandmother for care. She likes to smile, watch friends play, talk with people and be teased. She enjoys crowds and isn’t shy with strangers.
Agency staff met Rosemary in November 2017 and said she could respond to voices and move her eyes to follow moving objects. She gazed at her caregiver and smiled responsively. She had increased muscular tension in all extremities and was unable to control the movement of her arms and legs. Her neck muscles were also tight and she tended to have her head turned to the right. Rosemary was said to be a good sleeper and was able to express pleasure, joy, sadness and anger.
