Spastic Cerebral Palsy; Partial epilepsy;
Strabismus; Mental disability

Etta is a warm and cuddly four-year-old girl. She currently lives in an orphanage near the Black Sea in Eastern Europe.

Etta was born with Cerebral Palsy and Epilepsy. As a result, she has some developmental delays but is receiving support and therapy from a specialist at her orphanage and is showing progress.

During the day, Etta is active. She can rise by herself, walk with a walker or support from an adult and eat with a spoon. She can pronounce different sounds using her tongue and she sleeps well through the night.

She enjoys connecting with adults and responds well to her caregivers. She is positive and likes smiling and expressing joy by clapping her hands.

Etta enjoys working on her socialization skills and tries to play with toys with other children. She also likes to listen to music, especially when she’s feeling nervous as it tends to calm her down.

Etta needs a loving family who will support her and encourage her as she continues to develop.
