Dondeena is a happy little girl. She loves close face-to-face interaction, and she’s very ticklish! When Dondeena is held, her face immediately breaks into a big smile and she squirms around joyfully. She’s quick to make friends and we are so grateful to be able to love and care for her!More

We spent a lovely Easter at Maria’s Big House of Hope with lots of sunshine, candies, and Easter stickers! Dondeena wore her Easter sticker the entire time, and had a great day among friends.

Everyone at Maria’s Big House of Hope had a lot of fun celebrating Christmas! Dondeena helped make her own thumbprint ornament and loved listening to the Christmas music as we caroled through her room. And she looked cute in her Christmas hat!

We had so much fun celebrating the season at our Fall Festival, and Dondeena came dressed up as a beautiful princess topped with a tiara! She posed in the photo booth with her nanny, got a bunch of fun new stickers, and had a ladybug painted on her cheek!

Dondeena just turned 4 years old. She is a sweet and content little girl who we love very much. Dondeena enjoyed her birthday party—where she got to eat cupcakes, play with balloons, and was gifted with fun new necklaces and a lot of stickers (a favorite)!

Dondeena’s days are full of people who love and care for her. She spends a lot of time in physical therapy, and she also spends time outside soaking up sunshine on afternoon walks with her nannies and friends. Dondeena’s nannies help care for her needs and also make sure her hair is done up in cute pigtails each day!
