Special needs adoption from a Jewish perspective.

Special needs adoption from a Jewish perspective.

 Today's child on Renee's Challenge is:


Girl, born February 2008
Diagnosis: epilepsy, generalized form with severe seizures
Moderate mental delay

Sweet Anne, all dolled up for her picture!
She does have some general delays, and is not yet independent with potty training.  She would greatly benefit from being in a family!


In September of 2013, I see Anne going to kindergarten with all of her friends.  Her epilepsy is controlled with medication, so her parents stop for a brief conference with her teacher and the school nurse (so her Epipen is properly labeled and stored) while she runs off to explore the toys and books on the shelves.  She potty trained over the summer, and is very proud of her princess panties!  Her "moderate mental delay" is most likely an institutional delay which she will overcome very quickly and grow up.... like every little girl should!
