Calm and active. Not sitting, it is not necessary, turns in all directions. Shifts the toy from hand to hand. Interested in other children. Babbles.
A family adopted from the same orphanage in Dec 2011. They did not meet Isabel, but said it was a very nice place: “The kids were VERY well cared for, all the ones that we saw looked healthy. This is an excellent facility and the kids seem happy and well-adjusted.”
Update from a family who met her, March 2012:
Isabel and Holly are together in the same group. She is small for her age, not walking yet, but the caregivers are working on helping her stand and she takes steps holding their hands. She is a very happy, sweet, gentle personality. She enjoyed our time interacting and responded well to being hugged and held in my arms. She is tiny for her age but looks healthy overall.
Isabel’s grant of $2335.21 has been gifted to Leanne in Asia.
