Shayla: LWB’s Featured Child of the Week
One-year-old Shayla is new to LWB’s Foster Care Program but is known to many as a previous resident of LWB’s Heartbridge Healing Home. Shayla was born with cranial meningocele, and she spent time recovering from her surgery with the loving nannies at Heartbridge. Recently graduating, she is now in LWB’s Guiyang Foster Care Program… and we can’t wait to watch her grow and flourish!
Shayla is sitting quite well on her own. She has a weak grip but otherwise seems quite strong. In addition to already babbling “mama” and “nai nai,” she puts her arms out to be picked up when her foster mom says “up.” Going out with her foster mom and watching TV are two things that make her smile. Shayla now has 16 teeth, many of which are said to be “sweet”… Shayla definitely enjoys her treats.
If you would like to follow along with us as Shayla develops and watch her blossom into a toddler, we invite you to become one of her sponsors. Foster care sponsorships are $35 per month, and sponsors will be updated with monthly reports and photos of sweet Shayla… and her sweet tooth!
