Arrival Date:  November 7, 2016

Our newest arrival—sweet little Cass—made amazing progress just in the first two weeks following her arrival at Harmony House on November 7, 2016.  She was born prematurely on October 10, 2015, weighing less than 2.5 pounds.  Although no serious health issues were discovered, she just did not thrive at the orphanage.  At 13 months, she was very week, had no teeth, could not sit alone and couldn’t even maneuver her body to reach her bottle or get a toy.
 
But God has blessed her in our care.  With a regular feeding schedule, some attention and the help of massage therapy (which is continuing), within two weeks Cass was eating and sleeping well, beginning to reach for and play with toys, holding her bottle, sitting alone in the “training” chair and beginning to climb.  As you can see from her picture, this little one is spunky and on her way to making a statement in this world!
 
Named for our dear friend and partner, Cass Benner of the Tampa, Florida area, little Cass is looking for her Forever Family.
