From Aug 2012:

Arnold is an intelligent, outgoing and sensible child. Among all the children in the institute, the sound of Arnold is the clearest and loudest. Every time warm-hearted people visit the institute, he will say hello to them in a warm tone. He can understand all the words of other children and can “interpret” them to fresh caretakers. He is active on various classes and never feels frustrated if he answers wrongly. If other children have questions, he helps them with patience and understanding. Sometimes, if other children scramble for toys with him, he will cry and report to caretakers. With the persuasion of caretaker, he will let them play first.
With the longtime of training, he can walk freely, as well as step up or down stairs. He is a strong-minded boy who can walk with almost the same speed with other children. Sometimes, he will go earlier than others, which enables him walk faster than others. Of course, there are times that he needs other’s help. Every time when he needs help, others are glad to do him a favor because he gets along very well with them, and he will not forget to say “thank you” to them. He dreams to be a fireman. Although it’s not possible for him to realize his dream, his dream makes him a brave man and will help him get over various difficulties.
