- Case #Juno
Juno was born in August 2013 and has Down syndrome. Juno spent the first eleven months of her life in an orphanage before moving into a foster family in July 2014.
Update May 2017: Juno has no known cardiac issues or digestive difficulties. She communicates mostly via nonverbal means but does vocalize several purposeful words and is beginning to repeat more of what she hears. Her foster mother believes that Juno understands much more than she is currently able to express. Juno willingly interacts with the other children in the home. She eats a varied diet with a good appetite, drinks milk and juice from a bottle, eats mashed food, and is able to chew food that is chopped into tiny pieces. Junos foster mother is working with her on toilet training. Juno does not receive any therapies at this time.
April 2017: Juno is a healthy girl who walks independently and can feed herself. She loves music, singing, and playing outdoors. Juno's speech development is delayed, but she expresses herself through gestures and signs. Juno's foster mother exercises with her on a daily basis, working on stretching, strengthening core muscles, and chewing.
