Laranda looked adorable in her Christmas antlers! She wore the biggest smile as she danced and giggled along to Christmas carols. Laranda’s joy is wonderful, and we loved celebrating Christmas with her!

We see so much joy in Laranda’s beautiful, vibrant eyes and bright smile. Laranda can often be found exploring the room in her walker, causing smiles wherever she goes! She is delighted in by all of her nannies, and we love her.

Earlier this year Laranda moved to our Care Center in Jiaozuo and she is doing well. Her nannies and nurses describe her as a happy and beautiful girl with a big smile and sweet laugh. The older she gets the stronger she grows, and she is able to sit by herself more and more.

Laranda’s favorite part of preschool is story time. She enjoys curling up in her teacher’s lap and looking at all the pictures as they read together.

We had a great time welcoming the Fall season at Maria’s with a festival. The children had fun dressing up in costumes and collecting treats like candy, stickers, and bubbles from different caregivers around the room. Laranda looked radiant as a butterfly. She wore a fancy pink tutu with a fun pink and green butterfly headband!
