Bella was born in February 2014 and found abandoned when she was about 7 months old. She has been diagnosed with congenital estropia and cerebral palsy.
SPECIAL FOCUS CHILD RELEASED TO THE SHARED LIST
When Bella was first found and brought to the hospital she was diagnosed with congenital estropia but otherwise considered healthy. In December 2014 she was moved into foster care where she had a regular life and normal routine. Her report was completed when she was 13 months old and said that she didn’t have a very good appetite and her favorite food was milk so she was given formula with her meals every four hours. She was said to have normal physical development but her language was delayed. She could locate the direction of sound and follow objects with her eyes. She could roll over, move a short distance on the floor but wasn’t crawling. She grasped toys tightly, used thumb and index finger well and enjoyed playing on the floor or bed. She also liked sitting in a walker and walking in it – that makes her laugh out loud!
Bella could distinguish between strangers and familiar people and enjoyed when adults played with her. she liked watching TV and listening to music. When she is happy she laughs and claps her hands, and when she is unhappy she cries. She was described as a fairly extroverted girl who has a ready smile and gets along with others.
