Avril - Update {Taiwan}

Last week in Taiwan we spent some time with Avril again. We met her the last time we were in Taiwan and introduced her in this blog post. It was so much fun to see her again and confirm our original impression that she is a precocious little girl. She notices everything going on around her and is very bright. She gave some great answers to the questions we asked her, expounding on the need for a helmet when riding a horse with understanding that few 4 year olds have.

Avril has a complicated heart condition. She has had 2 surgeries and has significant clubbing of her fingers and toes and is a dusky color. She needs a family who can get her the medical care she needs.

She communicates very well and uses long sentences with advanced vocabulary for a 4 year old. She likes to be active and had fun riding a little scooter around the room. She also played in the little playhouse in the room and forget hiding anything from her, she is tenacious and will keep looking until she finds what she is looking for.

She has a darling little giggle, which you hear quite often. She likes to eat cookies, I mean, who doesn’t?

Avril needs a family. Could she be your daughter? Please contact us at mary.chapman@gladney.org for more information.
