Winnie’s New Coat for the New Year

In China, many people believe it’s important to welcome the new year with new clothes.  Eight-year-old Winnie is so proud of her new coat and is ready to bring in the Year of the Rabbit!

Winnie is a very sweet girl who lives at the Shunde orphanage in Guangdong, where LWB has done orphanage assistance projects.   This girl is always smiling and is very outgoing.  The nannies love her because she is an excellent helper!   Cleaning the table, mopping the floor, making beds, folding clothes and feeding babies are all fun and games for Winnie.   She has a little humpback (a frontward curving of the spine that causes a bowing of the back), but it is said to not be too serious.  Winnie walks very well, although occasionally she is a little unsteady.  She expresses herself well but has difficulty articulating some of her words.

Winnie is very happy to have a new coat (even it is a little bit too large for her) and can’t wait to celebrate Chinese New Year.  Perhaps next year she will be able to celebrate the Year of the Dragon with her forever family!
