Willa was born in February 2011 and found abandoned as a newborn. She has been diagnosed with post-operative lumbosacral spinal meningocele.

AGENCY DESIGNATED SPECIAL FOCUS CHILD

When Willa was initially found her condition was poor and she received surgery quickly. A few weeks later she was placed with a foster family and her physical development improved. Her adoption report was written when she was six years old and at that time she was described as being active, cheerful, happy, generous and thoughtful. She was extroverted, energetic,  liked to listen to music, play with toys and play outside. When Willa is unhappy her caretakers give her things she likes and hold her to improve her mood. She is closest to her foster grandfather and likes plush toys.

Willa is able to walk independently but does wear corrective shoes. Her language development is said to be similar to that of her peers and she speaks in sentences of 5-10 words. She asks questions and converses normally with adults. Willa understands what to do when she’s cold, hungry or tired, but it has been reported that her intelligence is delayed compared to her peers.
