Stephanie is a sweet almost 2-year-old girl that has repaired spina bifida (meningocele). She has bright, beautiful eyes and likes to ask for hugs from her caretakers. Stephanie’s caretakers describe her as a lovely girl. She received a successful surgery for spinal meningocele in November 2013. She recovered well from the surgery, but her orphanage recently noted that she has mild hydrocephalus and will possibly need a surgery.
Stephanie is from one of our AWAA orphanage partnerships in China and is designated as Special Focus. A family at any stage of the process is eligible to review her file. If you are interested in learning more about Stephanie, please contact our China program staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
