Nikki

Oh sweet little Nikki! She is 10 years old and has cerebral palsy. She is so sweet and beautiful and smart.



Nikki attends school at the orphanage. She receives daily therapy. She likes school and has a lot of friends. She is outgoing and friendly. When we met her in April she answered many of our questions herself rather than letting her caregiver answer. She said she likes to draw and her favorite game is "dropping handkerchief", she also informed us that she doesn't like meat.



She is independent in her self-care and can walk without assistance. She follows two step commands, counts, and can read simple Mandarin characters. She speaks appropriately for her age, though she is a little hard to understand. She was eager to do any activities we gave her to do when we met her. She also was really good at imitating English words!



This little girl has a special light, if you would see her smile you would understand what I mean! Could little Nikki be your daughter? Please contact April Uduhiri at april.uduhiri@gladney.org for more information.
