She babbles all day long and loves to giggle at her caretakers. She is described as being quiet, cute and well behaved. She loves to smile when someone calls her name and she can say hello and goodbye by waving and blowing kisses! Emma loves to clap her hands to the rhythm of music and play seesaw with her friends.

Lydia is a beautiful, extroverted and active 12 year old girl from China who is hoping to find her forever family. She was brought to the orphanage at the age of 10 after being abandoned, and it is believed that she spent the early years of her life being raised by her biological family.
 
Lydia has been diagnosed with HIV and tuberculosis, however, her growth and development are right on target. She has good self-care abilities, and she gets along well with her caregivers, teachers and peers. She is described as being kind, optimistic, cheerful and generous, and enjoys spending her time singing, dancing, drawing and playing with other kids.

Mina is an adorable little girl from China who is about to turn 8 years old. She was not abandoned and sent to the orphanage until she was almost 6 years old, so she was presumably with her birth family for the first 6 years of her life. This probably means that she received more one-on-one attention when she was a young child before coming to the orphanage.

Mina has a hearing impairment and she started to wear a hearing aid as of May 2016. Because of this, Mina is delayed on her language development. However she can understand the instructions of her caretakers, partially by observing the mouth shapes that her caregivers make, and she can use signs to convey what she wants and needs. She is making sounds and she picking up more and more all the time.

Mina is described by her caretakers as being adorable, having a ready smile and being very kind. She likes to play outside and with other children. She is also said to be a great helper to her caregivers and will do things like throwing trans into the trash can and cleaning up water that has spilled on the floor.

You can contact the China Home Finding Team at Great Wall if you would like to learn more about adopting Mina. We hope we are able to find Mina her Forever Family soon!

That being said, she has a wide range of expressive ability and is able to express her needs clearly to her caregivers. She is currently receiving physical rehabilitation services, music education, and acupuncture to help with her mobility delays.
