Child Of The Month

By Barb Corol

Cinthya Nicole was born in January 2013 and lives with her parents and one sibling. In December 2014 Cinthya was referred to Niños Incapacitados by the DIF Social Worker in Jocotepec and immediately accepted into our program. Cinthya suffered Neonatal Hypoxia.

Hypoxia in a newborn is considered a medical emergency. After birth the delivery room doctor or nurse assesses the newborn for typical responses, behavior and physical condition. If the baby displays signs of hypoxia such as abnormal coloring or behavioral problems, the immediate response is to attempt to restore oxygen flow to the brain. This can only be done if the reason for the hypoxia is clear.  Unfortunately in Cynthia’s case the lack of oxygen to the brain was not corrected quickly leaving her with irreversible brain damage.

Cinthya doesn’t speak, walk or have any form of communication.  She has no control of her bodily functions and will wear a diaper for the rest of her life and suffers seizures.  

Cinthya does have very caring parents and grandparents who make her feel loved every day. 

To date, we have reimbursed the family $70,675 pesos for transportation, anti-convulsive medications and therapy. 

Thank you for the opportunity of presenting one of our children to you.

Remember we see families at three locations, Jocotopec, Chapala and Ajijic.  Should you be interested in attending a clinic, please contact Nicole Sergent at 376-766-4375 or Barb Corol at 376-766-5452

We are looking for individuals or foundations who can help us take over the care of our ageing out children. If you can help, please contact Nicole Sergent at the number listed above.
