willa

Willa is a precious little girl from China that just recently turned 6 years old. Willa appears to be physically is healthy but she is developmentally delayed in some areas. Willa did not come into the orphanage until she was 4 years old, so it took her a while to adjust to living in an orphanage setting. Willa is more introverted and shy and enjoys listening to music and watching television. She doesn’t like to talk a lot but she can speak and understands what other people are saying to her. Willa can speak 5-10 word sentences. Willa can follow simple instructions and is cooperative when doing activities in class. Will enjoys playing outside and participating in games with the help of her teachers.

There are some indicators in Willa’s file that she might be on the autism spectrum, however that is not directly stated anywhere in the file. Many of her delays could potentially be due to the fact that she was abandoned at an older age and that she is still very sad about losing her family and that she has never fully adjusted to living in the orphanage. She could be struggle to connect to others because she still thinks her birth family might be coming back for her, even though they are not. It is hard to say for certain, but this little girl is clearly in need of a loving Forever Family that will make her feel safe and secure in the knowledge that they will never leave her or forsake her.
