Child's Code: Faye
Birth Date: 3/29/2011
Gender: Female
Description: *This child was formerly on the shared list*

From Oct 2013

When sweet Faye was found it was discovered that she could not stand on her own and even with support, her shoulders and legs were a bit soft.

When Faye arrived, her spirits were normal, she had no power in her hands or feet, she was thin and she had a slight cold. After taking medicine for a few days, she got better. Since then, she has rarely gotten sick and she is a child with a strong immune system. After caring for her for nearly a month, we discovered that she could stand up while using her hands to support herself on her crib and she could also walk back and forth while using her hands to support herself on her crib however, she couldn’t walk on her own. When she was playing in her crib and fell, she would start to get up on her own but couldn’t and would cry. After a while, she slowly got up on her own. Sometimes when you take her outside to play and use your hands to support her arms, she will mischievously use her feet to kick toys around. When she’s in her crib and she sees a new toy or object, her hands will stretch out and her eyes will look at you like they’re saying she wants it. If she doesn’t get it, she will cry. However, she is also easily consoled and if you just stroke her head and hug her, she will stop crying immediately and display a happy smile. When she’s playing by herself, she will unconsciously call out, “ba ba” and “ma ma.” When she calls out, “ba ba,” it’s quite clear. She likes to watch TV and when she sees an interesting program, she will often laugh out loud. Fayes favorite thing is to steal other little children’s toys. She likes to chat with others, smile and play. She also loves beauty and when she wears pants, she is not responsive, but if you put a skirt on her, she will immediately smile happily. This is probably due to her female nature. When she sees the staff playing games with the other little children, she will sit on the side and laugh as her eyes squint. It looks like she wants to go and join in.

Per an update on March 10, she can stand on her own for about 2 seconds. She can take about 4-7 steps on her own, she can walk completely while using her hands to support herself.
