Hi, I’m Mackenzie and I just turned 4 years old! I love to play with my toys, especially the ones that make a lot of noise. I was diagnosed with congenital blindness and I am not able to see. I am super smart, on target developmentally, and I love to talk to my caregivers. I have been living in a foster home and learning so much! I can get around familiar places and I like to color on paper. One of my favorite things to do is listen to music and dance!
Hi! My name is Korbin and I am 5 years old. My doctors tell me that I have Autism. I still need adults help to put on and take off my clothes and I need reminders when to do some things like going to the bathroom. Even though I need some help when eating, I am not a picky eater! My favorite foods are dumplings and fruits. My foster family says that I have good motor development and I am very coordinated. I am a quite boy and I don’t speak. I like to listen to music and play with toys by myself. I just started studying in the kindergarten class and hope that I can do well!
Hi, I’m Bradley and I am 8 years old. I came into care when I was 2 years old because I developed a growth on my spinal column. I had surgery to remove it but it left my legs unable to walk. Due to the fact that I cannot feel my legs, I also need assistance going potty. All of this does not stop me from doing great in school and learning! I am very smart and creative. I have a great sense of humor and I am always smiling and laughing!
Hello! My name is Lisa and I am 11 years old. I am in the 5th grade and my favorite subject is Chinese literature. My doctors tell me that I am a Hep B carrier and also have a mild heart murmur. My conditions do not stop me at all! I love to jump rope and participate in fan dancing. People say that I am a sweet girl and when I get nervous I will cry. I love to do origami and my favorite animals are puppies, kittens, and rabbits. If I could have three wishes I would wish for a big doll, to take a ride on a big airplane and go outside for a picnic or BBQ.
Hi! I am Brandon and I am 10 years old. I have cerebral palsy so it takes me a little more time to finish tasks and actions but I can do lots of thing on my own. I can put on my clothes, take a bath, and brush my teeth without any help. I even like being able to help my caretakers with clearing the table and daily chores. I am studying in the kindergarten class in the orphanage and have learned names for common objects, colors, and numbers. I try hard in class and like to ask “Am I the best?” I love to be supported for my good work. Most of all, I love getting to paint with bright colors in class. I am always friendly to everyone and I keep a smile everyday. My caretakers say that I am empathetic and comforting to others. I just like to make others around me happy and keep them laughing too.
