Paulina is an 8 year old precious little girl.

Her beginning: Paulina was found on a train. After the police failed to find her birth parents, she was sent to the Social Welfare Institute where she currently lives.  She was approximately 1.5 years old. Initial exam determined that she suffered from Congenital Heart Disease.


Her personality: Paulina is described as gentle and introverted.

Her medical, development, and special needs: An updated physical exam revealed that she suffers from vision problems and is deaf and mute.  Paulina plays with other children but has no communication with them.  She can see some light and enjoys sitting in bright areas.  She is limited with poor hearing, vision, language skills, but caregivers say that she learns a lot through exploring with touch.  Paulina has cognitive delays due to her special needs. She doesn’t know sign language and seldom communicates with others.  In addition, Paulina does not attend any school.
Paulina is diagnosed with post-operative CHD, deafness and vitreous opacities in both eyes. In February 2010, she received surgery for ligation of PDA. Since then her file says she has no abnormal cardiac functions. According to her most recent update in August 2016, she hasn’t had any other heart surgeries and hasn’t seen a doctor for her heart or eyes.

Her need for a family: 
Paulina needs a family to help advocate for her medical needs and to help her get the therapy she needs. Most importantly she needs a family to love her and keep her safe, to teach her how important she truly is, and to be blessed by the joy she will bring.
