AGENCY DESIGNATED SPECIAL FOCUS CHILD
*** Grant up to $2,500 available for qualifying families ***
Lily’s adoption report was written when she was 27 months old. She could sit independently but was not yet standing. Her body development was slow and she was said to be little and weak. She could drink milk but vomited if she had too much. A test of her digestive system showed no abnormalities so she was given smaller, more frequent meals.
Due to a cough a doctor suggested giving her Singular every day. Although she was weak her mental development was good. She could recognize her caretaker and would stretch out her arms for a hug while saying, “yiyiyaya.” After being cuddled she would smile. She could understand what was said to her and being scolded would make her unhappy. She could imitate the actions and words of others and understood what “no” meant. She could also respond to others asking her for objects. Her favorite toy was twist bike.
A CT scan in April 2016 showed no abnormal findings
FEBRUARY 2017 UPDATE BELOW:
She can crawl and sit without assistance and can walk and run with a walker, but could not stand on her own yet. There were no changes with her health and she had gotten stronger and gained some weight. Her development is still delayed compared to peers but her intelligence is normal and she understands everything said to her.
Lily’s hospital tests showed she had pulmonary hypoplasia with signs of asthma which she was taking medication for. She was gradually getting stronger and not having issues being short of breath anymore.
