*** $2,500 grant available towards adoption fees ***
LeAnn was found in December 2011 with a note from her family indicating her date of birth. After she entered her orphanage she entered a pre-school class for children 0-2 years old.
At 8 months they say she had a good appetite but was not fat. She liked when the caretakers did touching exercises with her and sang songs for her. She would smile and giggle. She enjoyed music and liked to play on an electric organ. When the staff cuddled her in the activity room she would laugh aloud. When she saw her favorite toy she would grab it and shake it or put in her mouth. When she cried the nannies cuddled her, said her name and touched her face and she would quiet quickly.
At the time of her report she was almost 12 months old and in class with 27 other children. She was said to be a deep sleeper. The rest of her report just discusses her routine and what she eats. No new developmental info but there is an update completed in 2014 below.
