Victoria is Miss Smile of the orphanage. She gives her shining smile even to strangers and charms them with her dimples.

Victoria is a child with special needs. Victoria almost doesn’t talk, but she expresses her emotions actively through facial expressions and separate words. The girl moves in a wheelchair and searches the playroom crawling. Moreover this little sun – as caregivers call her – has self-service skills, for instance she can make a hairdo on her own. The femininity shows up in Victoria, she always tries to choose a nice garb and keeps an eye on her appearance.

Victoria is a very kind and obedient girl and understands easily what adults want from her. She shows an interest to all toys around her. She’s easy to eye contact. Most of all Victoria attached to small children. She palms them and talks in her own language.
