- Case #Heidi
Heidi was born in August 2013 and has been diagnosed with infantile cerebral palsy, spastic quadriparesis, symptomatic epilepsy, and microcephaly with multicystic encephalopathy. She has global developmental delays.
Heidi is a calm little girl who can roll from back to stomach, lift her head briefly, and sit with support. She primarily holds her hands in clenched fists but is able to grasp a toy for a short period of time if it is placed in her hands. She works with a physiotherapist daily. Heidi makes eye contact, reacts to noises by turning her head, and vocalizes combinations of sounds. She watches other children play and enjoys attention from adults, smiling and laughing when they interact with her. Heidi is fed via nasogastric tube and is fully dependent on her caregivers.
A family ready to adopt Heidi should be prepared for lifelong medical and developmental needs.
