Sadie is a beautiful little girl who has suffered in pain for most of her life due to her medical condition. Her bones are very fragile and she’s suffered many broken bones over the years. She is not receiving the treatment options that would be available to her if she were in a family. She is a very sweet and smart little girl who makes the best of her physical condition. She talks very well and enjoys having conversations with the staff. She goes to the day care center each day and she is described as the “mother hen” because she will remind care givers that they need to change a child’s diaper or feed a child his bottle or that they need to pick up the crying baby. She tries to keep them all in line! She can identify her colors, some animals and shapes. She’s receiving instruction from a special education teacher that comes to an orphanage. In an effort not to cause her physical harm, the staff limits her movements and how much they carry her around. She spends most of her days in a stroller. She can use one of her arms to hold on to items and wave hello. She has recently learned to feed herself and she’s very proud of this accomplishment. She has a very good personality and is very friendly to all of the children and staff at her orphanage.
We have several photos and videos of her that were taken in October 2012.
Because we only have this child’s file for a short time, she will not be able to receive donations until a family is found for her.
