She is on target developmentally with gross and fine motor skills and enjoys participating in physical activities. Miriam has been described as a shy child until you get to know her. Once she feels comfortable however, she warms up and and is a delight!
Her favorite subject in school is English and Miriam says she would like to be a Medical Doctor when she grows up.
She is also 10 years old by her birthdate, but physical and bone scans indicate she can be between 10 years and 13 years old.
