Ross was born in July 2012 and found abandoned a few days later. He’s been diagnosed with ptosis, deformity of both feet (sounds like club feet) and having 6 toes on each foot.
SPECIAL FOCUS CHILD RELEASED TO THE SHARED LIST
When Ross was 8-10 month old he would smile when he heard music, his eyes would follow a caretaker and he would dance when he found other children playing. He could eat biscuits and stand with the help of a chair. He understood what was said to him. When he was 11-14 months old he still could not speak. He could sit and move his body to play. It was noted that he had “varus” which may mean clubbed feet. When he was 15-18 months old he couldn’t walk but could move his body. He sang songs and was very clever. When he was 19-24 months old he learned to count.
When he was 25-27 months old it was noted that his mental development was the same as peers. He was talking and walking by himself, and could remember the names of adults and other children. When he was 32 months he spoke clearly and could express himself. He liked playing with other children although he was introverted.
At the time of his report, in April 2015, he could crawl on his hands and knees, walk, pick up small objects with his fingers, and could move blocks in and out of a cup. He was imitating and speaking words, and responded when spoken to. He was cooperative with dressing and potty trained during the day. Ross was said to be timid and shy but also talkative. He had a ready smile and got along well with others. His favorite toys were animals.
FEBRUARY 2017 UPDATE BELOW:
Ross had surgery to remove the extra digits on his feet in Oct 2015. In February 2017, an agency representative went to Ross’ orphanage and met him personally. She reports that he is currently in kindergarten and is doing well. He has a good personality and has made great progress since first coming to the orphanage. The director of the orphanage reports that his situation continues to improve and she would love to see Ross go to a good home.
