Description: Meet Bao! You might also recognize him as "Huck" from New Hope.This little guy is only 9 months old, and had surgery to treat his meningocele just days after he was born. He was very sick when he first came into care, but gradually started gaining weight after his surgery. He is close to his caretakers and loves to be teased and tickled by them! He will make little “ah ah” sounds and show his sweet smile. Bao does not seem to be interested in toys quite yet, but he can hold a little toy that is given to him. His nannies feel that his cognitive development and physical development are slightly delayed compared to his peers. His legs do seem to have strength and he likes to kick them around! He can’t roll over yet, but he is able to lift his head while lying on his stomach. Could you be little Bao’s forever family?
Medical Condition: Cleft palate, Hydrocephalus, Meningocele, Tethered spinal cord
