"In September of 2011, Lila began to receive preschool education in ordinary elementary school near the institute. She has Chinese, math, music and art classes. She was very happy and would go to the school with other children happily. Since she has deformity of the right hand, she can only write with the left hand. But this has not beaten her. Other children can write after several times of practice. For her, it would be dozens of times. Sometimes, she would say to the teacher “my hand hurts.” She still insists finishing the homework. Her spirit moved every teacher who teaches her. She is a child who is so persevering. Everyone loves this girl who has a ready smile and fair skin."
NOTE - In Chinese schools, children do not write "lefty" no matter what.

"Henry attends kindergarten at his orphanage, physical development slightly delayed, very clever, speaks very colloquial Chinese.

Can follow instructions, always tidies his desk and chair before leaving school, very obedient. Gets dressed quickly in the morning (first or second one finished), gets along well with other children, very talkative with friends, communicates well with teachers, when something isn’t fair he is good at knowing what’s right.
"Health is a little weak, frequently gets tonsillitis, but is very brave. When nurses & nannies give him IV medicine, he says “Henry is lovely, Henry doesn’t cry!” Only his facial expression changes when the needle is injected, but he doesn’t make a sound, he’s a very sensible child. He is very cooperative during treatment, his eyesight isn’t good. He’s very careful when going up and down stairs. He’s protective of himself. When his eye is uncomfortable, he tells his grandmother so they can see the doctor. He makes promises to his grandmother that when he gets a new mom & dad he will study well so he can take care of his grandmother in the future. His grandmother is very touched when he says this. The grandmother really hopes that a very kind family will adopt him so his love can be complete and so his life can be full of happiness."
