Orphan Doctor


We interrupt my latest addiction, the state department website (SO informative!), to bring you:

A New York based pediatrician who specalizes in adopted children. Her entire site it worth a preview.

Here are some links:

Lili’s Story – this narriative explores the unknowns in adopting an orphan

Complete Travel Preparation Guide – I’ve never seen anything like this – complete with check list! This six page guide covers everything from parasites to oral motor dysfunction. It includes lots of simple treatments such as T-Gel shampoo by Neutrogena for cradle cap. (Schäfer had that and we had T-Gel shampoo, but didn’t know it was OK to use! Bless his heart. We just let him flake away.) The guide also includes the mathematical equation for figuring out how much Tylenol to give based off of weight. I’ve already printed this out. It’s a must have. I’ll be consulting with our pediatrician regarding the prescription medicine.

Rickets – a detailed section on what happens when there is a lack of Vitamin D (sun exposure)

Health issues in Chinese Children – region specific. There are additional pages for health issues in Russian and Ethiopian children.

Recommended Screening Test and Evaluation – Within the first 10-14 days in the U.S., it is recommended that the adopted child visit a pediatrician. This is a comprehensive list of tests recommended by most adoption medicine specialists.
