FSY is an adorable little guy who is almost 3 years old. He was born with an eye condition called bilateral persistent hyperplastic primary vitreous (PHPV). He received surgery when he was 13 months old which should prevent further damage to his eyes. However, the likelihood of FSY achieving any usable level of vision is very, very slim. He needs a family who is ready to accept a child with no vision and who will help him as he grows into a strong and wonderful young man. FSY is a lovable little boy who brings joy to everyone around him. He needs a family to love him. Such an easy thing to do...he is a precious boy!
New info: FSY is now 96cm tall and weighs 13.5kg. He has not received any further surgery on his eyes. He seems to have some limited vision (light perception, perhaps?) He has seldom been ill. SenYang has not begun speaking yet. He does not join in play with the other children; it is difficult to know if this is due to his lack of vision. He needs help with toileting and feeding. He is cooperative when the nannies are dressing him. It is impossible to know from the limited information we have whether or not his delays are due to his lack of vision...but surely this must play a huge role. There was one part of the update that was heartbreaking...they said sometimes he cries when he has not been hurt. I cannot imagine how scared and confused this little guy must be as he goes through his day without the stability of a loving family. Please contact about FSY.
