5-Year-Old “Mae” is Waiting for a Family

5-year-old, Mae is a sweet little girl who is described as talkative and happy and currently lives in a foster family through a program at her orphanage. She attends rehabilitation and goes to an educational class each day Monday through Saturday. Staff at the orphanage say she is beautiful and describes her as a well-mannered little girl. She has good self-care for her age. She can both put on and take off her clothes and can feed herself.

She is active and positive at school, very interested in new things and gets along well with her other classmates. Her teacher and classmates like her. She likes listening to music and children’s songs and singing and dancing are her specialties when music is playing.

Mae has good physical and mental development as well as good gross and fine motor skills. Her development is on the same level as others her age. She can point to the different parts of her body and can use language to express her needs and communicate with others. She enjoys playing with toys and blocks are one of her favorite activities.

Mae has binocular congenital glaucoma and had surgery in Beijing in February 2018. She will bring objects closer to her face to see them and can reach for objects that she sees. She does not have any other medical concerns, and an update to her file notes that she can eat, drink, and navigate well in familiar environments as well as care for herself with some assistance.

Her caretakers note that her language expression is just like the other children and she picks up on things very quickly, much faster than other children.  She is active and loves to sing, dance, and listen to music!
