Calliope was born in 2005 and has been diagnosed with a congenital brain anomaly, infantile cerebral palsy, and severe developmental delays.

Calliope shows some movement in her upper body. She can lift and turn her head and sits with support. She cannot crawl, stand or walk. Calliope reaches for toys and holds them, but does not use them according to her function. She loves to play peekaboo and studies her own reflection in the mirror. Calliope is nonverbal and does not seem to understand speech, but she smiles at others and follows their movements with her eyes.

Calliope recognizes many of her permanent caretakers and enjoys their company. She appreciates individual attention and emotional closeness. Calliope seems happy among her peers and allows them to caress her head.

Calliope is entirely dependent on the care of adults for feeding, dressing, diapering, bathing, and going places. She is waiting for a devoted forever family that can meet her permanent special needs.
