Ruby was born in December 2013 and found abandoned when she was 8 months old. She has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy.

AGENCY DESIGNATED SPECIAL FOCUS CHILD

When Ruby first entered her institute her movements weren’t coordinated and stiff. At the time her adoption report was written she was able to roll over and was in training to stand. She could take a toy with her hands and hold it over her head. When a caretaker plays with her it makes her happy and she laughs. Although she is fairly introverted Ruby enjoys being kissed and touched by caretakers and other children. She likes dolls and can sit a few minutes with support.

MAY 2017 UPDATE BELOW: 

Compared to her peers her mental development is behind her peers and she cannot speak. She sleeps well in her own bed and is receiving rehabilitation training to practice sitting, standing and crawling. There has been slight improvement. She often plays by herself and can be stubborn. Her favorite toys are plush.

DECEMBER 2017 UPDATE BELOW: 

Ruby played games for rehabilitation and seems to know her name now. When her name is called she looks up to see who is calling her. When she was sitting in a chair too long she would cry to let caretakers know she wanted out. She laughed and cried to express her emotions. With constant training she is learning to control herself.
