    SM accepted this and did not ask any questions. She suggested they happened pre-adoption. Sherin came to US Jun/Jul 2016.

    Second skeletal survey done later. Bones don't heal properly in bone disorders, so was looking for that.

    Bones were healing appropriately, so not diseased or faulty bones.

    The fact that the elbow fracture happened in the US, so they believe the femur/tibia fractures must have happened after those and not pre-adoption. They were healing still.

    Sherin had fallen off the growth chart. They did not what her growth was pre-adoption. She had lost weight while in the US.

    SHerin was improving with her nutrition but was not back on the growth chart Dr was concerned that it the family stopped attending the clinic and Dr contacted CPS but they were closing the case.

    Sherin gained weight between Jun 2016 - Jan 2017, after the adoption. Jan 2017 weight started to drop. Many disorders tested for, none found. No dwarfism or skeletal dysplasia.

    July 2017 discussed the need for a feeding tube for Sherin. An NG tube to start with.

    Had referred her for an evaluation for the feeding tube. Defence said this may become tiresome for a family to keep 2w weekly appointments.
