Girl, born 2004
mild mental delays
Patience has parentage of mixed backgrounds (her father was reportedly a visiting foreign exchange student) and she is treated poorly because of her skin color. She is not in a great orphanage; she desperately needs a family.
From a family who met her in 2012:
She’s precious and sweet, but was terrified. They said she doesn’t talk hardly at all ever- my guess is selective mutism. She was definitely the racial minority, no apparent physical disability at all, very smart, receptive language skills seemed awesome. We just adored her and felt so sorry for her.
She would press up close to us and slide one little dark hand over and touch my knee and then the others would yell at her and she’d cringe and her eyes would cloud over and she’d slide to the back of the pack and just watch. We just loved her. Truly.
