Introducing Angel, The Face Of Trewan Sands
We now have Angel the “Face” of Trewan Sands
Angel was born on 23rd May 2011 with a big mop of black hair. She was diagnosed at birth with Fetal Valproate Syndrome, Trigonocephly and Spina Bifida Occulta She also has Hypotonia. She was later diagnosed with severe Reflux, Global Development Delay and Autism. We were told not to expect much from her. We soon realised that Angel could not see and after many tests we were told Angel would likely be blind. She could see lights though so we bought her toys with flashing lights and sat at the window with her. When she was 7 months her vision came in, it was just vastly delayed!
Angel’s now 5 years old, she celebrated her birthday on the 23rd of May and had a lovely party surrounded by all her family and friends on Saturday the 28th of May. She spent the whole afternoon singing into a microphone and dancing, she especially enjoyed opening all of her presents.
She enjoys going to Millwood Primary Special School where she has made many friends including Oliver who is her Very Best friend at school. We recently had the pleasure of attending Angel and Oliver’s Sports Day at School and as the pictures show they had a brilliant day. She’s a very clever little girl and now has reading books, counts, recognised letters, numbers and shapes all of which was thought never possible.
Angel has become quite the entertainer and loves singing and dancing. Her other best friend Joe recently taught her how to dance to the “Birdie Song” and she is now working her way through the dance CD’s learning all the new dances including the “Gangnam Style”. On the 25th of June Angel was chosen to sing live on stage at the Lowry Centre along with other children from special needs schools and she took centre stage. She is a truly inspirational little girl who learns new words, signs and songs every day , she has made some very special friends here at Trewan Sands and she loves coming to the offices to entertain us with her singing, dancing and her new pout xx
