Journey of Hope Guangxi with The Barker Adoption Foundation
Barker recently participated in a Journey of Hope program in Guangxi China. This program allowed us to meet many special needs children from four different orphanages in Guangxi in hope that we would be able to find families for them. We have been assigned the files of twelve children through this program – six of which we currently have the files for and six more for which we expect the files to come soon. Please take a moment to look at this blog to see the descriptions of the first five available children.
Qian means “Pretty” in Chinese and Qian is certainly a pretty 10 year old girl that will turn 11 at the end of the year. She was born with hydrocephalus and a later CT showed congenital dysplasia. She attends school at Half the Sky and likes to get involved in all school activities.
Yang Qian is quiet and shy. She is currently in 2nd grade in special education school. Her language development is fine. She can communicate well. She can sing songs and recite poems. Her mental development is a little bit behind. She knows some Chinese characters. She can do simple math by counting real objects. She can describe a picture with simple sentences. Yang Qian can take care of herself. She can help with some housework. She likes sports. Now she likes playing basketball very much. She is also very good at arts and crafts.
