Girl, born 2012
Down syndrome

Julie is an adorable and cheerful little girl who gets along well with all of the caregivers and children in the orphanage, though she has a favorite nanny! A little mimic, she is very good at imitating other’s movements, and is especially flexible. She enjoys watching TV and playing with dolls. Her sense of rhythm is good, and she dances along with music. Julie is diagnosed with Down syndrome, as well as an umbilical hernia. When she was younger she also had mild anemia.

In 2016 she was attending preschool within the orphanage. As of May 2017 she can walk, run and jump, go up and down stairs, and stand on one leg! She is able to understand and follow directions, and says “mama” along with a few other simple words. Though it is messy she is able to feed herself with a spoon, and she can dress herself, including socks and shoes. Julie is a precious girl who needs a family to love and cherish her!
