Eddie was born with Cerebral Palsy. Eddie has an open oval window and an extra ventricular chord in his heart. He is said to have a moderate mental delay.
Pictures we had of our boy (sorry, some are blurry, but it's still him!) before we met him-
His medical info from RR -
Boy, Born July 11, 2006
HELP!!! I HAVE ALREADY BEEN TRANSFERRED!
Edwin is a handsome little boy with dark hair and dark eyes. He was born with Goldenhar Syndrome. This is a very rare condition, and is accompanied by several additional medical complications for Edwin. His medical records indicate: congenital nervous system malformation – internal obstructive hydrocephalus, subcompensated form, rickets, mental delay, right micropsia, acoustic meatus atresia – Goldenhar syndrome, delay of physical development. This little boy needs SURGERY to relieve his hydrocephaly and a family who will love him and save him from certain death in a mental institution.
***Due to the severity of Edwin's needs, families interested in adopting this child in particular must be HOMESTUDY APPROVED before an official match or commitment can be made.***
