Description: Meet 8 ½ year old Nan! This young lady is diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy, but she has worked so hard in rehabilitation therapy and has overcome a lot! She has learned to walk independently, go up & down stairs, and perform some self-care tasks all by herself. She loves playing with her friends and she does not let her diagnosis slow her down! Her nannies tell us she is a caring, kind-hearted girl who is always willing to help the younger children. Nan cannot express herself verbally, but she can understand what is said to her and will use gestures to communicate her needs. She can sometimes become frustrated or impatient, but her nannies take the time to work with her and it usually not long before she is happy and smiling again. Sweet Nan has so much potential! Imagine what she could do with a forever family cheering her on!
Medical Condition: Cerebral Palsy
