Lydia was born in November 2016 and found abandoned when she was around 6 months old. She has been diagnosed with post-operative congenital cataracts and congenital heart disease.

AGENCY DESIGNATED SPECIAL FOCUS CHILD

In April 2017 an ultrasound of her heart showed, “congenital heart disease, patent ductus arteriosus, left-right shunt at the arterial level. Mild aortic stenosis not excluded.” In June 2017 Lydia was sent to Beijing where she received surgery and rehabilitation for her cataracts and then returned to her institute in March.

Lydia was said to be a quiet girl who loves to play with plush toys. At the time of her report in July 2018 she could make simple sounds, would turn in the direction of noise and could visually follow a moving toy. She interacted with the nanny she was close to. It was reported that due to her CHD her development was delayed compared to peers but she could roll over, sit and stand with help. She could crawl on her hands and knees, pick up small objects and held a pen to scribble.
