AGENCY DESIGNATED SPECIAL FOCUS CHILD

 

Sophie received surgery (Glenn operation) in December 2015 for congenital heart disease, (VSD & ASD), and umbilical hernia.  At the time her report was written Sophie was 3.5 years old. She was able to look at her hands and hold them together, grab and hold objects, pinch objects with her fingers and pass objects between her hands. She could crawl, sit and walk with her hands held. She had begun to babble and could say simple words and would smile when she saw a familiar person. When she would cry a cuddle would help her calm down. She liked dolls and was said to be a quiet and bright girl. If she did something wrong she would stop after seeing the facial expression of a caretaker. When another child needed comforting she patted that child’s hand. Sophie enjoyed being pushed in a stroller and playing outside. She would smile when she was happy or saw something she liked. She liked to watch TV and read picture books. Sophie was said to be timid and afraid of strangers.

Sophie was prone to catching colds and was showing signs of heart symptoms such as blue lips and phlegm. She did nebulization four times a day, and rehabilitation daily. She could stand while leaning against a wall and could walk with her hand being held. She sometimes would say “baba” but wasn’t naming objects. If there was something she wanted she would go and get it. She could understand conversations and was able to follow instruction. Her cognitive abilities were said to be lower and her self care was relatively poor. She was described as timid.

SEPTEMBER 2017 UPDATE BELOW: 

Sophie’s foster home said she’s, “sweet, spunky, and 4 years old. When you walk in her room, her sparkling eyes and cheerful smile will greet you as she says, “Hello.” She enjoys spending time with her nannies and soaking up all the snuggles she can get.” Her “silly personality comes through when she’s playing with a toy or laughing at someone who is making funny faces for her. She’s a good helper, often spending time following the nurses around—watching while they check their notes or giving a helping hand while they examine other children. It’s a joy to see her independence and kind personality continue to grow.”

Sophie entered her foster home “when she was almost 2 years old, and she was diagnosed with congenital heart disease. She is a determined girl, and has come a long way since she arrived. We are so proud of her!” Her “nurses and her physical therapist say she continues to work hard, and she has improved in many ways in the time they’ve known her. We love her and we’re thrilled to introduce you to her. Her courage and strength inspire us every day. Please join us in praying that she will soon have the opportunity to enter the love of a family through adoption.”
