Gina has a sunshiney smile!
From a family who met her in August 2013:
Precious Gina is so willowy and gentle. She is being loved and cared for in her baby house. She is soon to be transferred, though. Her groupa goes outside twice daily on nice days and she sits in a stroller staring at the leaves and feeling the breeze. When touched and cuddled, she moves her head toward you. Her skin is soft, and her hands are so gentle. She blinks with delicate eyelashes and seems to be trying to clear the fog to see you. I got to see her several times and each time her face lit up with a smile and she moved her chest side to side rhythmically to acknowledge her joy at being noticed. She is so full of life, and needs more therapy to help her reach her full potential. Gina deserves so much more than what she has been given. If only her mom and dad could look into her eyes and see how much life is behind them. She is a treasure, and is in desperate need of a family as she approaches the age of transfer. The institution she is headed for will not offer her anywhere near what she has now. Please see Gina before she is lost forever.
Gina received massage therapy regularly, is in diapers, and could use some dental care. She is very thin, but is being offered excellent nutrition. She is in a region that we felt comfortable having just mom stay for much of the travel. More pictures and a video available.
From a family who met her in early 2014:
I did get to see her several times while the door was open to the groupa’s play room. She is so very skinny now. When she was left in her crib she was usually crying and trying to roll over. One day there was a sweet nanny holding her and singing to her. She had the biggest beautiful smile and was loving being rocked and sung to! Her hair looked like it had grown out some. She had really beautiful, sweet curls.
Gina is now available for international adoption as she recently turned 5.
