Raina from Bulgaria
Siblings Rosalie, Rico, Ramona and Raina were born in June 2005, May 2006, August 2008, and February 2010, respectively. They are healthy children with typical physical and cognitive development. Rosalie has congenital ptosis of her right eye. The siblings were removed from their biological family in 2015 due to severe neglect and social isolation. Since that time all four children have made vast progress. Currently, Rosalie and Rico live in the same orphanage, while Ramona and Raina live in two separate foster homes.

Rosalie is in 5th grade where she works with a resource teacher. She enjoys learning English and has shown improvement in her reading and writing skills. She loves to participate in group games, activities, and organized events, and also likes drawing, listening to music, and dancing. Rosalie has developed hygiene habits and is completely independent in taking care of herself.
RICO is a friendly, respectful boy who enjoys drawing and sports, and like his older sister, loves group activities and events. He communicates in simple sentences when at ease, but when nervous he struggles to comprehend what is being said and to fully express himself. Rico is in 4th grade where he works with a resource teacher. His reading, writing, and math skills are continually improving. He takes care of his personal hygiene and keeps his room clean with reminders.

These siblings have shown immense progress over the past two years. They deserve a family environment that provides them with the support, structure and individualized attention necessary to achieve their potentials. While they do not yet understand the specifics of adoption, they share a close bond and a desire to live together as part of a true family.
