Josephine

Birthday: July 22, 2001

Josephine is a sweet, energetic, happy girl. She came
to Wings of Home from Grace Children’s Hospital, where she
was abandoned.

Josephine has cerebral palsy and spinal problems.
Her physical disabilities slightly limit the use of her extremities,
but she has active movement in all her extremities. She is able
to stand with support and likes to get out of her wheelchair and
walk with assistance. She can feed herself.

Josephine works with the physical therapist daily to
strengthen her muscles and increase her abilities. She is in our
recreational therapy program to keep her body and mind engaged
when she is not in physical therapy. She also attends
the Wings of Hope school.

Josephine likes playing with toys and interacting with
others. She can speak Kreyol, French and English, and often
repeats words and phrases she hears. She often interprets for
volunteers with the other kids and staff. She helps to lead the
daily prayers at Wings of Hope. She loves music and can sing
many songs. She is very bright and likes to play jokes on people.
Josephine loves to be talked to and held. She likes to
look out for the less-abled wheelchair children. She likes listening
to music on her CD player.

Josephine has a heart-warming smile and an excited
squeal when she is happy. Everyone who visits Wings of Hope
is drawn to Josephine and she captures their hearts.
