MIRA
July 2011
Shared List
Cerebral Palsy
Mira's file is pretty outdated and in one section says hydrocephalus and then in another it just says CP.  I am waiting on an update to get clarification.  It sounds like she has been sent to a rehabilitation hospital so I am hopeful that her care is good.  From her February 2013 file:  Even though her growth and intelligence development is a bit behind due to her hydrocephalus she is still lovable and she is in our hearts as a pretty little princess.  When Mira is supported by an adult holding both of her arms she can take steps forward.  Both of her hands can grab onto toys and play with them.  Mira can use words to express herself and she likes the nannies to talk and play games with her.  When she hears the nannies telling her she's pretty she will smile.  Even though her language and movement abilities are delayed she likes to be with other children.

CLARA
June 2007
Shared List
Cerebral Palsy
Clara was 3 years old when she entered her orphanage thin and weak and initially cried a lot when approached by strangers and had digestive problems because she would overeat.  She also was not able to hold her head up, roll over or sit, BUT, after a time of adjustment to the orphanage and some therapy she began to improve greatly!  At the time of her report in in January 2012 she could hold up her head and look around and had flexibility of limbs.  She could roll over freely, sit up and play independently.  The orphanage staff continues to work with her in hopes that she will stand as soon as possible.  They say she has a good appetite, great physical condition and seldom gets sick.   Her caregivers all love her and hope she will find a happy family of her own.
2014 UPDATE!  Clara is accomplishing so much!!!

KATE
March 2003

Vision Impairment
Kate was a completely closed wild child when she arrived in her current home.  She spent a year in primary school and then moved to th eBeijing School for the Blind.  She did very well in transition to the blind school and she lives with two other girls and a nanny and she has thrived with the structure of the school day and cuddling.  She is good at walking with her cane and can easily find her way around places that she knows.  She can read braille and speak a little English.  She has caught up to the rest of her peers in terms of her education and she'll be starting Grade 3 this fall.
Update from March 2014: "She is a beautiful and happy girl.  She is friendly and loves talking to people and trying out her English - she is quite good!  She is in Grade 3 at the Beijing School for th eBlind and she is very independent.  She can do all self-help skills on her own (dressing, washing) as well as her chores (cleaning, helping prepare meals) and she can walk to school and the shops by herself.  She has been with Bethel for over 3 years)."

"During their art class, the kids were all given a flower to smell and feel, to be the inspiration for their painting.  Kate loved her rose so much, she kept a tight hold on it for the rest of the day!"
