Theme details

Soft animals (Cute or Realistic style) - Some nature/sunset scenes would also be good to have along with a few of the animals. Cute/realistic style please. Soft animals (eg rabbits) or woodland animals (eg squirrels, fox etc)

For the label, some of her interests eg clouds and stars/books would be nice.

Child Interests

She loves animals, the stars and the night sky. Sunsets! She loves sunsets and clouds! She loves books! She listens to audiobooks for hours every day but always likes to hold the actual books! She loves riding, swimming and the beach.

She recently chose the colours of her room and opted for dusty pink and navy blue so they must be her favourite colours.


Eliana is 10. She is gentle and courageous, strong and compassionate. She is wise beyond her years and quietly determined.

Eliana came into the world prematurely and suffered from oxygen deprivation at birth. At six months she made no attempt to follow lights and we believed that she was unable to see. She missed motor milestones but initially it was thought that this was due to visual impairment.

At 18 months old, with increasing vision, it was apparent that there was significant motor delay caused by a brain injury.

At just under 3 years old she underwent her first eye surgery and this was closely followed by SDR surgery to try and increase her mobility.

Following intensive physio and rehabilitation she had muscle lengthening in 2019, more eye surgery in 2022 and is having more surgery on her leg next month.

We know that this will not be the last of the surgical intervention. Her right leg has not grown as fast as her left and at some point there will be more surgery to correct this. She had opted to put back more eye surgery for a while. She felt that she needed a break!
