Madison

Madison was born in October 2014 and found abandoned when she was around 2 months old. She was diagnosed with Hemangioma and a CT Scan when she was a year old indicated brain dysplasia and high muscular tension at head and neck. Cerebral Palsy is suspected but not confirmed. Hoping for a developmental update for this sweet girl!

When Madison first entered her institute she was said to have yellow skin, eczema and a bad appetite. After being cared for by the institute she began to get better and the eczema began to heal. Her caretaker kept her nails short so she wouldn’t break open the hemangioma on her face and was careful with her. Madison was sent to Shanghai for a surgery consult but there was no operation due to the position of the hemangioma.

Madison is said to be a quiet girl with big eyes and fair skin.  When she is alone she doesn’t cry and sleeps quietly. Her report was completed in December 2015 and at that time her development was delayed compared to other children her age. She was not yet sitting independently but could lean against her caretaker. Although she could understand what was being said to her, she was only making sounds and imitating words at that time but not speaking. Her favorite toy was a red hammer and she would grasp it with both hands and smile. She enjoyed playing hide and seek and plush toys.  They said her smile is reserved, gentle and soft as she is a shy girl.
