Child's Code: Yi
Birth Date: 9/1/2014
Gender: Male
Description: Yi first came into care at his orphanage when he was just a few months old. He is now 2 and a half, and has already won the hearts of his nannies and teachers! He loves to be hugged and cuddled by his caretakers, and he greets them when they come into the nursery by making happy little “ah ah” sounds. Yi is active and outgoing, but he sometimes prefers to play alone. He is happy just crawling around the room to explore, or sometimes he will find a new and interesting toy to play with. He will also wiggle his body to the rhythm whenever he hears music!

Yi can crawl and is able to walk with assistance. He can take a few steps on his own, but he is not very steady yet. His nannies tell us he has a definite imitation ability, and he has learned to clap his hands, shake his head, etc. by interacting with his nannies. His caretakers tell us that in general, Yi is a happy and cheerful little kiddo. He seldom cries, and when he is upset it is easy to get him smiling again. His overall health is good, and the orphanage says he does not show symptoms of heart disease.
