This male child was born in April 2013. His biological mother has a mental delay and he has been diagnosed with infantile cerebral palsy – hypotonic form; quadriparesis – moderate degree; bilateral pes cavus (high arch of the feet); joint hyperlaxity; and delayed neuropsychological development. His latest MRI results are “excellent” and the doctors give him a “very optimistic prognosis” for his future development. He is currently residing in a foster home and has developed a good relationship with his foster mother and enjoys playing with her. He participates in gymnastics. He speaks some words, crawls, rolls over, climbs into his bed, and takes steps with assistance. He is inquisitive, observant of his surroundings, responds to his name, and expresses his feelings appropriately. He smiles, establishes non-verbal contact with others, demonstrates an interest in toys, and participates in games and activities.
His adoption will require international travel. If you would like more information please contact the KidsFirst office at 317-843-2300. We are able to provide many pictures, medical and psychological reports, as well as videos for this sweet child.
