Another stunning girl from our waiting list, Ginny, was born in February of 2011. The orphanage staff say she is a cheerful, happy, generous girl. She can speak 5-10 word sentences and understands adults. Ginny is diagnosed with postoperative repair of lumbosacral spinal meningocele. An update from August of 2019 says the following: Ginny has been living with a foster family from March 2011 until now. Her measurements are Height 126 cm; weight 20 kg; bust 57 cm; head circumference 51 cm; teeth 28; foot length 18 cm. She has not had any ultrasounds or CT scans. She is currently attending a special education school in the institution. Her courses include mathematics, Chinese, English, life adaptation, crafts, painting, music, and sports. Her academic performance is very good. She likes to swing, slide, bounce the ball and do some exercises and she is closest to her “grandpa”. Unfortunately because of her surgery, she cannot control her bowel movements or urination at this time. She uses a catheter to urinate and a diaper for bowel movements. Please note many children after this kind of surgery have bowel issues but learn to care for themselves and their issues can be unknown to others. Don’t let this scare you away. The surgery has also affected her leg movement somewhat. She can climb stairs with great perseverance AND she can walk unaided! You have got to see all four of her videos! She is just darling. Please won’t someone come to the rescue of this bright and beautiful girl before she begins to lose hope!
