April was born in December 2013 and found abandoned as a newborn. She has been diagnosed with deformity of four limbs, genetic bone disease and moderate aortic valve stenosis. A US physician in SLC who has reviewed her information has suggested Robinow Syndrome, while another physician has suggested the possibility of Turner Syndrome. The family who pursues April should be comfortable with either diagnosis, or something else entirely as she’ll need genetic testing once home for accuracy.
SPECIAL FOCUS CHILD RELEASED TO THE SHARED LIST
When April first entered her institute she cried a lot and her nurse was concerned for her. After considerate care she adjusted to life in the institute and cried much less. She grew stronger and was able to crawl around on a mat and would smile at the nanny. By 14 months old she could reach her hands out to touch the teacher’s face when being held and played with. By 20 months she started walking by holding onto a bed rail, although they felt she could do it independently if she wasn’t so timid.
By 2 years old she could carry a toy, especially a rag doll or bell, and walk around. She would listen to the teacher’s instructions to hand objects to other children. In an effort to provide more love and care she entered a grandma’s nurturance project in February 2016. At her new home she received considerate care and training from her foster parents and was soon attached to her foster siblings. When her foster mom was hold her hands and talking to her tenderly she would look into her eyes and make the sounds of “EN” to respond. When she would see her foster dad coming home from work she would happily clap her hands and follow him around. She was too young to run fast but could chase siblings. Her siblings liked her very much. April enjoyed watching cartoons and on weekends her foster family would go on outings and take pictures which she enjoyed posing for.
Her adoption report was written in March 2016 and she was described as being chubby and adorable. She understood what “no” meant, could imitate words and was fond of listening to music and playing with toys. Her favorite activity was stacking blocks with her foster siblings and her favorite toy was a rag doll.
FEBRUARY 2017 UPDATE BELOW:
According to April’s update she was living with a foster family on the grounds of her institute, played with her good friends in the courtyard, and was attending pre-school every day. She could feed herself rice and noodles and her favorite foods were fruits and candy. She was able to manage the potty independently but at the time of her update her foster mother helped with bowel movements. She liked to take baths and played with toys in the water. She also liked dolls and running with her foster brothers. She got along well with others and was very happy to be played with. When she was sad she could be soothed by being gently picked up. Her body was said to be weak and she often caught colds/pnumonia.
