All You Need Is Love {Marlene - Taiwan}

Meet 7 year old Marlene! She was a little shy at first but soon warmed up and became very personable. After a few rounds of questions she exclaimed “I’m out of my wits!” because of all the questions!



Let me tell you about Marlene’s favorite thing in the whole world – her baby doll! She loves playing mommy and taking care of her baby doll! She told us all about how her baby has a fever and how she has to take care of her. When I asked what other toys she likes to play with she told me she only likes playing with her baby!



Marlene is in a special education class at school and her foster mother told us that she does well. She gets along with the other students in the class and generally can play well with other children. She can be a little stubborn at times, but usually she has a mild, gentle personality.



Marlene has Prader-Willi syndrome and developmental delays. We have a ton of information that can be shared, including videos! For more information on Marlene, please be in touch with Taiwan program caseworker Mary Chapman at mary.chapman@gladney.org.
