Updated from 2019: Coco is an adorable and smart little girl, who loves to interact with others! Coco learns so much by observing her nannies. One of her caregivers shared this sweet story in her file: “I asked her “Coco, Where are your ears?” She didn’t seem to know. I touched her ear with my hand and told her “Coco’s ears are here.” Then I pulled my own ears as well and repeated telling her “ear, ear.” Then after about three minutes of playing, I asked her again “where are Coco’s ears?” She thought a while, looked at me, walked to me, and pulled my ears. We all laughed! Then I asked again “Where are Coco’s ears?” She then withdrew her hands and touched her own ears.” Coco goes to preschool in her orphanage. Right now she is learning how to count and recognize Chinese characters. She can say simple words and phrases. She plays well with other children and she can follow her nanny’s instructions.

Camille’s gross motor skills are basically normal. She can walk, run, and jump independently, but her balance ability lags other kids of her age. Her fine motor skills are generally normal. She can independently complete finger pinching, eating, washing hands, washing face, etc., but her coordination skills are relatively poor. She clearly speaks “Mama, Ayi (aunt), Chifan(eat rice), Nihao(hello), bye-bye, Zuo(sit down).” However, she doesn’t usually speak clearly. Sometimes when she says a word, she will utter “ah ah ah” in a hurry. She understands instructions, such as “throw the rubbish into the garbage can” and “set the table and chairs for lunch/dinner.”
When seeing caretakers standing and feeding other kids, Camille would bring a stool and ask the caretakers to have a seat. She is gentle in character and gets along with other kids peacefully. She has strong imitation ability, such as learning from her caretakers how to fold clothes and quilts. When watching TV, she will imitate dancing. She is extroverted and very enthusiastic towards visitors. She is not picky about food and she has a good sleep at night.
Camille has a $1,000 agency grant for her adoption with her current adoption agency.
