Delays in the neuro-mental development               

Julian is a calm and loving 4-year-old boy who has been raised in a home for orphans in Eastern Europe since birth.

Julian has been experiencing delays in his neuro-psychological development and has been diagnosed with Hydrocephalus Magna and Spina Bifida Aperta. He has also had surgery.

While he is not able to walk due to his diagnoses, Julian is still very active and loves to play with different toys, especially those that make sounds or play music.

He is well-attached to his caregivers and enjoys being in their presence. Julian is curious and loves learning. When he’s near one of his caregivers or at face-level, he laughs and touches her face with his hands to express joy and to study her face. He is also very determined. Despite his diagnoses, he attempts to take serval steps when his hand is being held.
