Low birth weight; Hydrocephalus;
Delay in the neuro-psychical development

Leo is a charming 1.5-year-old boy who lives in a Baby Home in Eastern Europe. He cannot walk yet, but he sits, crawls and stands with support, showing progress in his motor skill development. Mentally, Leo is well developed for his age. He is a warm and curious little boy who loves playing with his favorite toy – a ball! He laughs and shouts when he plays with it.

Leo is a cheerful and peaceful child. He likes the other children and he knows how to charm his caregivers and receives lots of attention. He enjoys hide-and-seek and will wave “hello.” Leo has physical issues, but he is receiving supports and interventions from specialists in the Baby Home. His hydrocephalus is non-progressive, stationary and has no need of a valve. The child eats and sleeps well.

After the adoption, the child will need to continue the physiotherapy procedures to overcome hypotension, which is the main cause of the delay in motor skills development. It is also necessary to work with a psychologist.
