- Case #Brennan
Brennan was born in April 2014 from a pregnancy complicated by maternal insulin-dependent diabetes and preeclampsia. He has been diagnosed with diabetic embryopathy, a multicystic rudimentary left kidney, strabismus, and mild developmental delay.
Cheerful Brennan shows interest in his surroundings, enjoys participating in group games with other children, and has a good attention span especially for objects and activities of interest to him. He has developed attachments to familiar adults, freely smiling and laughing when interacting with them. Brennan walks and runs independently and has good hand/eye coordination. He understands what is said to him, vocalizes syllables and words, and imitates the speech of others. Brennan sleeps well, feeds himself with a spoon and is starting to learn toilet training. He works with a psychologist and speech therapist and is regularly monitored by a pediatric nephrologist.

Update March 2017: Our in-country representative recently visited Brennan and found him to be a sweet, sociable, playful little boy. He loves to be on the move but is also able to focus for extended periods of time on toys or games that interest him. While shy with strangers at first, once he warms he joyfully interacts with them. Brennan needs a family who can provide him not only with improved therapies and medical monitoring, but also with the love and stimulation lacking in his orphanage.
