Description: *This child was formerly on the Shared List*

Meet Nora! She is a cheerful and lovable 10 year old girl. She attends classes, and her nannies tell us she is a hard worker. She likes to study and will often sit on the side to listen as the other children have their classes. She seems to enjoy art, and will ask her nannies to teach her how to draw. So far she can draw little ducks and fish, and she also likes to work with clay! Nora is kind to the younger children and is very helpful to her nannies. She helps the younger kiddos put their shoes on in the morning, and will help the nannies clean up after meals. Nora is pretty independent and has good self-care abilities. She can wash her face and dress herself on her own, and she likes to make her bed each morning. Nora cannot communicate verbally and her hearing is not very good, but her nannies feel that she can hear some things. She will often bring a CD to her nannies and ask them to play it for her, and she always smiles while the music is playing. The nannies have tried to train her hearing and have found that Nora will sometimes respond when her name is called, but other times she has no reaction. Even though she cannot communicate verbally, she can use rich facial expressions and gestures to communicate her wants and needs. She also appears to have some muscle weakness (especially on her right side), but she is able to get around on her own. Nora has been in the orphanage since she was 4 years old, and has waited so patiently for her forever family to find her. Could you be Nora’s family?
