Abygaëlle has been at GLA since she was two months old. She came to us tiny and malnourished, but quickly began to grow and gain strength. At first, we didn't notice any apparent delays in Abygaëlle, she seemed like a normal baby. After a while we noticed her eyes begin to cross. At first we believed she might have some issues with her vision. Soon it became apparent that she was very late in reaching milestones like rolling over, sitting up or crawling. We began to suspect that Abygaëlle might have special needs. Dixie believes she may have suffered trauma in the couple months before she came to us.
Abygaëlle was born on Valentines Day. We're celebrating her 4th birthday! She is a very special girl with an unfailingly sweet personality. She always greets whoever walks into the nursery with a big smile. Abygaëlle loves movement and being active. It took her a long time to start crawling, now that is her preferred method of getting around. She can pull to stand but her coordination has made walking difficult.
Despite her special needs, Abygaëlle is a bright child who is naturally curious about her environment and loves to explore it. She also loves to interact with those around her. She's thrilled to play in water and could spend hours in the wading pool splashing. She loves being lifted high into the air and all forms of physical play.
As I write this blog, I'm praying (literally at I type) that it will reach the special family that God has set aside for
Abygaëlle. I know that the Lord is actively preparing very special hearts for this little girl, who is so deserving of a family she can thrive and grow with.
