October 7, 2013, 20:35 4330 Author: Maria Semashkina, translated by Anna Oliynyk www.deti.zp.ua When Angela is in the playroom, she manages to look through all toys and have a walk along the huge room in just a few seconds. Profile # 0061655

When Angela was first brought to the orphanage, she was sitting quietly in her bed, smiling gently when someone touched her. When she was taken for a walk, the girl clapped her hands with excitement. Besides, she was in the seventh heaven when she was one of those who could first admire dandelions on an April day, still pretty chilly for a walk.

It grew warmer, and together with other children Angela started going outside every day. She enjoyed swinging or just catching a few sunrays playing with her music toys.

And with the beginning of fall, the girl became so alive that now she is one of the most active children in the playroom. In half a day she manages to play with most of the toys and crawl across the room several times.

Usually the girl reacts to her name with her eyes. She can’t talk but she produces certain sounds if she is thrilled or excited. If Angela is really impressed with something, she starts swinging her arms. Her smile is touching and makes your heart melt, so she has got bright future ahead of her. There are no doubts about that!
