Girl, born January 2001
Mild to moderate mental delays
Soleil comes very highly recommended from the orphanage director. She has shown great progress since she entered the orphanage.
She is running out of time — a family must be found for her before she turns 16!
Update June 2013:
Soliel really stands out. She is a helper. She was helping the younger children stand up and dance and they were watching her to mimic what to do. She seems to be one of children that helps the orphanage staff as she is able to follow directions. She can read and speaks very clearly when asked questions. It is unclear why she is in this specific orphanage and they pointed her out specifically as needing a family! She is a very sweet girl who said she has dreamed about having a family but isn’t sure if she will ever have one- it just about broke my heart. There is also video available with her in it!
