Girl, born August 2007
Learning delays/low IQ
Lyla is a beautiful little girl who is 5 years old. She came into care just last August, and was found to be a normal, healthy little girl who was developmentally on target. She adapted to the orphanage life quickly. She was “tested” after being at the orphanage only 3 months, and they said she had ”clear pronunciation, fluent, restless, no abnormal action, flexible hands and feet, understand general objects and use of some objects, poor initiative action”…then they slapped her file with a low IQ number. Lyla can speak in full sentences, understands directions, cares for her needs, helps out with the children younger than she is, and is a delightful little girl. She attends kindergarten and lives with a foster family.
Lyla loves to play games, loves to go to school, and is a very happy little girl. I am not sure what they expect of her as far as “initiative” is concerned…but considering the changes in her life these past months, she seems to be doing very well! Lyla needs a family to love her, and enjoy every minute of having this sweet girl as their daughter.
