Update from May 2022
Tiny little Nikolina was born December of 2014 as a premature baby. Nikolina is said to be a sweet girl who has suffered a lot. Nikolina can turn from her back onto her stomach but is unable to crawl, sit alone, stand or walk. She can grab and hold in her left hand a toy located near her. She throws it and looks for it. She is able to drop and remove objects in and out of a box with support and guidance, using mainly her left hand. She often holds her right hand clenched into a fist. She puts a cube on top of another. She holds a spoon in a fist grip.
She can point out mouth, legs, ears etc. She likes to be talked to but she quickly gets emotionally tired. She pronounces some syllables like “ba-ba”; “dai”, “bye”; “Niki”. She distinguishes different voices, tones and understands more than the words she hears. She recognizes her own image in the mirror and responds to her name being called. This little love needs a family who can provide the care she needs.
