It’s time for another Too Cute Tuesday! Meet Kun (you might also recognize her as Quinn from Journey of Hope!) This silly, fun-loving 10-year-old girl always has a smile on her face. Please help us share her story so that she can find her forever family!
Kun likes to sing and dance, and she sure likes to talk too! She has learned to express her needs and takes the initiative to say “hi” to visitors and play games with the younger children. Quinn also comforts other kids when they are sad by sharing her own toys. She can help nannies with chores and loves to help others.
Kun was hosted in the US this last Winter as a part of our Winter Hosting Program! Kun’s host family shared some of their favorite things about her with us:
“Kun is a cheerful, cuddly girl who loves to giggle and be silly and loves attention. She is definitely a girly girl and likes having her hair brushed (and to brush others) nailpolish and chapstick, and the prettier the dress the better. She loves playing with shape puzzles, building toys (like legos and magnetic shapes) and especially play-doh. She LOVES to sing and could never get enough of swing dancing with one of us in the living room. She enjoys chores and took it on herself to do things like sweep, wash windows, break down boxes, and fold clothes – she has an amazing work ethic. She has good self care skills – can bathe (though I stayed with her at bathtime) and dress herself and can go to the bathroom on her own.
I feel she was very timid and a bit scared when arriving but left fearless. She was very scared of our two dogs at first – to the point that she couldn’t even look at them (we kept them confined by a baby gate in another room at first). But halfway through her stay she really warmed up to them, and really seemed to enjoy being around them and feeding them. Also at mid visit she just took that attitude with everything else – and threw herself into every activity from sledding to sleigh rides to horseback riding. It was neat to see her petting one of the big draft horses just a week after she was terrified of a dog.”
Please help us find Kun’s forever family!
