Oh sweet Vera! She is only 4 years old and has been in this orphanage since spring. She spends much of her day in the crib and she needs stimulation!! She is living on borrowed time. She has tremendous potential for improvement if only she is given the chance. She will require medical attention and families should expect at the very least physical therapy.
Update June 2013:
Vera is doing well! She looks good — but she still spends too much time in her crib.
Vera needs a family!
