Kristin was very weak and thin when she first entered her orphanage. When her file was prepared she was 7 months old and was able to turn her head and raise her arms when lying on her back and hold her head up when lying on her stomach. When she was hungry or needed to be changed she would cry loudly and stamp her feet to express her needs. After a meal she would lie on her bad and play while babbling to herself. She liked to be cuddled by the caretakers. When she was sitting in a baby chair she would watch the other children play and hold onto a small toy to play by herself. She she heard music she would get excited and wave her hands. When the music would stop she would freeze suddenly and look around to where the sound had been coming from.


Kristin’s report states that she is a deep sleeper. She could visually follow moving toys, distinguish between strangers and caretakers, laughed out loud and knew her name and would turn when called. She was described as a quiet girl who was fond of listening to music.


Her heart condition does not affect her and her lips do not turn blue.

When you take a toy and move it in front of her she moves her head in the direction of the toy.  She can roll over onto her side, but she does not sit independently. She does not recognize familiar people.

Because of the position in which she sleeps it is difficult for her to turn her head or support her head on her own. When her name is called, if she is sleeping she is slow to turn her eyes and respond.  Her hands are always in a very tight fist, and when she is grasping a toy she needs help opening her fingers, she does not consciously take the initiative to grasp a toy. It looks as though her intelligence is not very good.

When her nanny holds her and speaks to her she gazes at her nanny and smiles. She cries to get her nannies attention. She does not know when her name is called. Sometimes she babbles.
