We have met Noelle every time we have gone to the orphanage where she lives. Each time we are impressed again with how sweet and smiley she is.
Noelle is 8 years old and her listed special need is hydrocephalus, although when we saw her in October they told us that on a recent CT scan it did not show hydrocephalus. Her file also states that she has "mental retardation" and I am so worried that that is going to scare families off! She is catching up and doing so well! Please give this sweet girl a chance!!
When she came to the orphanage, around age 2 she was very delayed, but with time and therapy she has made great strides! She is attending school and has caught up with her peers. She is seen by her caregivers as a leader among the other children. She likes to help younger children.
She strings beads and counts to 10. She engages in reciprocal conversation and answers questions. She gets frustrated if she is unable to complete a school assignment. She takes care of her own needs with bathing, dressing, etc.
Noelle is such a sweetheart and she needs a family! Could she be your daughter? Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
