SPECIAL FOCUS CHILD RELEASED TO THE SHARED LIST

In September 2014 Graham underwent the correction of DCRV and repair of VSD under general anesthesia. The operative process was smooth and he recovered well after cardiotonic and diuretic therapy. The postoperative reexaminations including echocardiography, CXR and EKG were satisfactory and he was discharged from the hospital.

Grahams adoption report was completed when he was around 21 months old. At that time he could weakly sense light and only see objects very close to him. He could roll over, raise his head when lying on his stomach, hold his milk bottle without help and was babbling. He would occasionally call “mama.” He could crawl, bang blocks together and was cooperative with dressing. Graham was fond of listening to music and playing with toys, his favorite being a rattle. He was described as active and lovely.
