Here is Tina. Isn’t she cute? She was born January of 2010. Her diagnoses are cerebral palsy, and cerebral dysplasia. The most recent update is from May of 2017 and says the following: Tina’s intelligence is somewhat lower than that of children her same age but not much lower. She can understand all the instructions of the teachers and aunts. She can follow the other children in class to the play yard. She can learn nursery rhymes, three-character classics, and count to 10. She needs help taking care of herself. She can communicate with teachers and aunts normally and she can play with the other children very well. Tina loves to laugh and rarely cries.
When there is a need, she will take the initiative to ask the aunt and the children for help. She has some difficulty with speech but is able to say two word phrases such as “I eat”, “Good Aunt”, “Good Teacher” etc. Her upper limb tension is high. Although she can eat things by herself, she is not very coordinated. Her left hand has more issues then her right hand. She can stretch and contract her lower limbs and does have feeling in them. She can also kneel and stand on the ground with both hands but not for long. She has a gentle personality and is a lovely little girl. Could you be the perfect family for her?
