Cora’s report was completed in June 2016 when she was just two years old. At that time she was making early sounds and imitating words, was cooperative with dressing and responded when asked for things. She could distinguish between big and small and was fond of playing games and listening to music.

Seeing her foster mother with a bowl of food made her happy and she would wave her hands as if she was dancing. She was walking by holding onto objects and could stand for awhile without support. She liked to imitate her foster mother when she took a tissue or threw away trash. When her foster mother washed two apples and put them on the table, Cora would choose the big one every time. She liked to play with her foster father and has a foster brother who she loved to chase. If her foster father was on the computer, she would crawl to him and quietly sit beside him. Cora loved to giggle loudly when teased by adults.  Her favorite foods were apples and congee.  She enjoyed sleeping, playing with her foster family, playing outside and eating. She was said to be a quiet girl who got along well with others.

2016 UPDATE BELOW: 

Cora was raised in the orphanage until November 2015 when she was moved to go live with a foster family. An advocate who has adopted a child raised by this same foster family said, “she is being spoiled by her foster father who is gentle, loving, and quiet. Her foster mother is helping her to learn boundaries and is, no doubt, feeding her well.”
