Find My Family: Becca

UPDATE: My family has found me!

Becca is a sweet little girl waiting for a family. She turned 3 in October and has Schizencephaly, a non-progressive brain abnormality.


Her original file states she had a hemangioma and rickets, both of which are non-issues now. She was reported to have delays, which turned out to be due to her schizencephaly. A new MRI was taken in December and the images were reviewed here in the U.S. by radiologists and a pediatric neurologist, this results are available to an interested family. She is diagnosed with the least severe form of schizencephaly, being unilateral and closed lip.

It is reported hat she has not had any seizures. She is mobile and walking. Her speech may be delayed, but it is believed that she should thrive with the love and care of a family and the necessary resources for the therapies she needs for her special need.


Becca is designated to BAAS as a special focus file. Contact them for more information.
