Three months earlier, Robert and Jennifer Miller adopted baby Olivia, who had been abandoned the day she was born. At first, everything seemed fine; Olivia was happy and healthy. One day, one of the daycare staff shared that Oliva was having trouble making eye contact and rolling over on her own. She recommended that the Millers make an appointment with their pediatrician. Robert and Jennifer were worried and knew they needed to talk with their doctor right away.

During the doctor’s appointment, Robert and Jennifer’s fears were confirmed. Olivia was missing important developmental milestones. The Millers were devastated. They had been working for years to adopt a baby and provide the best for their new child, and they felt as if they had already failed Olivia. Their doctor reassured them that Olivia would be fine but needed extra attention that daycare could not provide, so he referred them to A Child’s Haven.
