Leigh is 8 yrs old
Born April 2004
Leigh is no longer assigned to the agency she was first listed with.
She is not currently on the shared list.
Please have your agency keep checking for a change in her status as she may show up on the shared list.
Her SN is that she is deaf
(Since Leigh has blue eyes,
there is the thought that she has Waardenburg Syndrome,
but she only seems to have the hearing impairment and blue eyes so, that syndrome is just a possibility as it has not been officially diagnosed.)
She is assigned to an agency.
This what is reported about her:
"Leigh is a pretty 8 year old girl who came into care when she was 5 years old. She was in good health, but was found to have no hearing or speech. She is a smart girl who quickly learned enough signs to communicate with the other kids and the nannies. She has beautiful blue eyes...this lead me to a bit of research and the possibility of Waardenburg Syndrome, in which the primary characteristic is hearing loss (and striking blue eyes)! She began kindergarten (they start later than we do) last year at the orphanage and has again shown what a good student she can be! She has learned even more sign language. She is a clever girl and is very out-going. She appears shy when first meeting new people, but will soon be more comfortable with them. She enjoys sports and playing with her friends. Like most kids her age, she likes to watch cartoons! She will be such a sweet addition to your family!"
