Little Joyce, at 3 ½ years old, has been with Harmony House for over a year.  We are happy to report, however, her next big milestone should be her Gotcha Day in a few months since she now has been matched with her Forever Family!
 
As with all children at this age, Joyce changes almost daily. She is 37” tall and weighs 32 pounds. Her motor development is good and her hands and feet are flexible. She traverses the stairs with ease, and she can catch balls tossed to her. She manages her own needs well, dressing herself, brushing her teeth and eating by herself. She is outgoing, loves to smile, is active and cute but can be a little impatient at times.
 
Since she did not speak Mandarin at the time she came to us, Joyce has had a lot to deal with.  She has, however, adapted well and learned quickly. She loves books and follows the nannies around, asking them to read to her. She counts to 10 and recites poems. She is adapting well--albeit with much still to learn--chatting and communicating.  Lily says she has never met a stranger but gets along well with everyone.
