Description: This beautiful baby girl is Xiang! She first came into care when she was just a couple of days old and her nannies instantly fell in love with her sweet personality. She is now almost 1 ½ years old, and her nannies tell us she is clever and playful. She loves interacting with others and listening to music!

Xiang is diagnosed with ichthyosis - a genetic skin disorder characterized by dry, scaling skin. Xiang’s nannies tell us this does have an impact her daily life. Her skin is tight, so her movements are not as flexible as her peers’. She is not crawling yet, but she can sit on her own, turn herself around in a circle, and stand against a wall. She can also play with toys and feed herself snacks. Her nannies bathe her daily and use ointment on her skin.

Xiang’s general health is very good – her nannies report that she is rarely sick. She is not talking yet, but she will make “mama” sounds and babble. Her caretakers say uses her eyes and facial expressions to communicate.

Could you be Xiang’s forever family?
