I have just been waiting to get the go ahead to introduce you to Helena! Her file is completed and we can finally put her beautiful face on the blog!

Helena is is 7 years old and has post-operative CHD. She was very quiet and didn't really think we were very interesting or fun, that is until she saw Douglas playing with a ball. She warmed up to him quickly and had so much fun playing with him! When our medical team wanted to see her she didn't want to do what they wanted her to do unless Douglas did it too! It was adorable!

She walks, runs, jumps, and kicks a ball. She played with Legos and put together a small set with a little help. She made herself a bead necklace and drew us a beautiful picture. She speaks in complete sentences and answers questions, but her voice is very soft. Probably she found us all a little overwhelming!

Helena is going to be such a wonderful addition to a family! Could she be your daughter? Please contact us at superkids@gladney.org for more information. We can't wait to speak with you about her!
