She’s five years old.
And has one week left to find her forever family.
Olivia is listed with Lifeline Children’s Services. An agency I can personally recommend. Highly.
They helped us bring home Sophie and Shepherd. And we love them, a lot.
An pediatric orthopedist very recently reviewed her file and had this to say:
“This girl will be very functional with her upper extremities. It is surprising how well kids with this condition will adapt to the point of even playing musical instruments. There is a well known newscaster in Los Angeles named Bree Walker who has a similar condition and has led a very productive life.
Her leg length discrepancy will worsen as she gets older and she will benefit from surgical treatment of this. She will likely need leg lengthening on her left leg. In the meantime the shoe lift is a good temporizing measure.”
