Evan was born in March 2013 and abandoned under a tree. When he was brought to the hospital they gave him a preliminary diagnosis of malformation of all four limbs.
AGENCY DESIGNATED SPECIAL FOCUS CHILD
Evan’s report completed March 2014 states that as a result of his malformation of both wrists his hands are not very nimble. He can grab things but cannot hold them securely. He’s able to sit but not crawl or walk. Although he may not react to noises made at his side he does turn to look when a familiar voice calls his name. He calls out “baba” and “mama.” When he sees a familiar nanny and he wants her to play with him he will make laughing sounds and say “mama!” His favorite activity is watching TV and he loves all toys.
Evan’s x-ray results reveal that the bone structure of the bilateral radius and ulna and the bilateral thigh bones are normal. Both wrists and knee joints are in a flexed position but the rest is normal.
Evan is said to be an active child who likes to sit on the mats and play. He also loves to listen to music which makes him very happy and he will smile. The report says that everyone likes Evan and they hope he will find a loving home where he can have a happy childhood and beautiful future. They feel he will bring his future family a great deal of happiness and blessings.
