What a cutie
Neville is a little over 1 and loves to be held and receive attention--no attachment problems for this guy. His primary diagnosis is hydrocephalus. He's had two surgeries for this--one unsuccessful and one not fully successful. He may have some epileptic brain activity but has not had an epileptic episode. It seems likely that with good medical care all of this could be resolved.
Neville is not meeting his physical milestones. That's likely because of the lack of stimulation in the orphanage environment. Even when children have workers who care, even love them, there is not enough time and enough workers to take care of all of the children. Neville needs the love of a family, and deserves to be a son.
