A SPECIAL CHILD

Baby M
Baby M

Angel House Orphanage does not usually accept children with special needs as we are more than one hour from the nearest major hospital and although our center is wheelchair accessible, we do not really have the facilities or trained staff to cater for children requiring special care. However, as we do accept new-born babies, we can’t always predict what kind of physical or mental difficulties may arise as the child grows up in Angel House.

Such is the case of a cute little boy that we will call baby M. This little infant came to Angel House when he was only six days old and last month he celebrated his first birthday, a very important milestone for such a special child. He was born with microcephaly, which means his head is smaller than normal, a condition that can result in other physical impairments. He was recently diagnosed as having cerebral palsy and also has problems with swallowing and his vision. We are also waiting for baby M to have a CT-scan to gain a better understanding of his physical condition.

Baby M takes daily medicines to relax his muscles and enjoys being cuddled and tickled! His caregiver gives his arms and legs regular physical therapy and he often has a cheeky smile when he is happy. The future for this innocent little boy is uncertain and so we celebrate every day that we see his happy smile.

Your donations through GlobalGiving enables Angel House to pay for his regular medical check-ups and the CT-scan, as well as his daily medicines that keep him happy and comfortable.
