Wren is said to love beauty. She was born in July of 2014. She had a meningocele that has been operated on but it left her unable to walk. One leg is also longer than the other. She has flexible fingers and if her hair is messy she will untie and re-braid her hair. She will also tie (braid) other children’s hair. Her arms are so strong that she can grab the bed edge with both hands and pull her body up. Wren is very clever and learns quickly. After the aunt taught her to read the children’s song five or six times, she could sing it to the aunt alone. She now recites some poems, sings some children’s songs, and does many finger games. She is also very patient. When she writes the numbers a few times, the aunt asks her to stop and take a break. She does not want to continue writing. She will now write the numbers 1 to 7. In outdoor activities, when she sees other children running, sometimes she will be especially lost. She will talk to her aunt and tell her that she wants to go wherever she wants, just like other children. Wren is a little girl with high emotional intelligence and sensible. Whenever the aunt sent her candy to eat, she would praise the aunt as “so beautiful and so beautiful”. When she saw that the aunt was very tired, she would say, “Auntie, sit down, I will give you a pounding back.” Although she is a bit unclear when she speaks, it is no problem to communicate with the aunt. She is very helpful. When she finishes eating, she will take the initiative to feed the children next to her. After feeding, she will also help the children clean their mouths. What a sweet addition to any family – could that family be yours?
