Hi:
You are a great aunt for taking in your nephew. You can best help your nephew be seeking out interventions for him now. If he gets therapy and other interventions now, he will have a better chance at a successful future. A pediatrician can advise you about where to begin. Please don't delay with this. An Opthamologist can treat the eyes concerns. I believe it's an occupational therapist that will be able to help the baby thru developmental stages and the needed adjustments. Again, with interventions that begin now, you can really help this baby. Don't ignore anything and be sure not to let others make the child feel inadequate as he grows and interacts with other children. There may be other problems that you will notice as the child grows. If you know that the mom would not put the child first and give him the extraordinary attention that he will need, make a decision that is in the best interest of the baby. The mom is an adult. She is able to take care of herself. The baby needs an advocate. I know that you will make the right decision. Please keep me updated regarding your decision and the baby's progress.
