Jamie is an eight month old baby with big blue eyes and blond hair, a happy little boy who is very engaging and attracts people to him with his smile and cheeky face. He loves attention but is not over familiar with people and likes the security of his foster carers being with him. He enjoys his bottle as he still has high calorie formula.
Jamie loves musical toys, singing and dancing, and his favourite song is “Rockabye your Bear” by The Wiggles. He doesn’t like loud noises and can be very jumpy and get frightened if, for example, a toy does something unexpected. Jamie loves toys that play when you press a button and will laugh and dance along with them. He loves his dinosaur and the Twirly Woos on TV.
Jamie experienced significant neglect in the first six months of his life, and his foster carers say that at first he was withdrawn and did not cry to be picked up. However, they have gained his confidence and now he recognises everyone and laughs and smiles to gain their attention.
Jamie does have some health issues, all of which are under the supervision of specialists and can be discussed further with the social worker.
