Little Yi and her parents first contacted us in May 2017. This sweet girl was a year old but weighed very little and was having trouble eating. Her parents came to Beijing for some further medical checkups as they were unsure what was going on with their child. She was given a diagnosis of cerebellar hypoplasia. We arranged some physical therapy training for the parents to know how to engage with their daughter. The family eventually returned to their home town and continued to receive support from us.
In November 2017, little Yi and her parents came back to our home in Beijing for some follow up vaccination appointments for Yi and a check-up with a rehabilitation specialist. Although, Yi’s situation is challenging, it is encouraging to see how well her parents are supporting her needs.
