This sweet smile belongs to Savannah.

Savannah was found abandoned in December of 2014. At that time, she was estimated to be 6 years old. She was slightly developmentally delayed (physically) at that time. She was placed in a foster home shortly after arriving at the orphanage. She has done rather well there and has overcome any developmental delay she previously had.



Savannah is described by her caretakers as beautiful, clever, sensible, polite and well behaved. She is well liked by everyone and gets along well with others. She enjoys playing with her little friends. She often helps care for her foster siblings. She willingly gives her toys to them for them to play with. Savannah likes reading, drawing, reciting nursery rhymes and poems and doing math. She has learned a lot of songs in school and sings them to her foster mother at home. She feels very pleased when her foster mother praises her. Savannah is also very thoughtful. If her foster mother is busy, she will step up to help with chores without being asked. She often will bring a stool for her foster mother to sit on.



Savannah is now in the second grade and doing well in school. She listens earnestly in class and studies hard. If there is something that she does not understand, she will take the initiative to ask her teacher or classmates for help. She goes straight back home after school and does her homework or reads books. All of that hard work really pays off for her, as she scores over 90 (out of 100) on every exam that she takes. Savannah has also has developed many strong hands-on skills. She is able to make a variety of small hand-made toys and do cross-stitch embroidery. She is also learning Latin dances and learning to play Chinese zither.
