Gina: LWB’s Featured Child of the Week
Two-year-old Gina first came into the care of LWB as a preemie, and our Heartbridge Pediatric Healing Unit helped her to grow strong enough to enter foster care. When she left Heartbridge and entered our Shunyi foster care program in February 2010, she was very wary of new people. Now, thanks to the love and devotion of her foster family, she has warmed up and is doing so well!!
She is now very welcoming to our manager when he visits and also to most new people, which is a huge change for her. Although at first she still keeps new people at a distance, she now warms up to them in no time.
Gina is walking and becoming more curious about the world, in part thanks to her loving foster sister Grace. She likes to do things on her own but adores Grace’s company as well, and these two girls are inseparable. Having a sister to play with, learn from and love has meant so much for Gina.
Gina is now beginning to talk more and communicate in short sentences, and her little voice is darling! She listens well and is obedient to her foster parents who adore her and treat her like a princess.
Gina needs an additional sponsor to pay for her monthly foster care fees. Each sponsor receives a detailed monthly foster care report together with some photos of her. Please consider sponsoring this cute little girl’s stay in foster care and you will get to see her beautiful smile EVERY month!
