Allison is a beautiful, giggly 8.5-year-old girl who lives with a foster family in Eastern Europe. An active girl, Allison loves to run, jump and catch or kick a ball. She also climbs and descends stairs with the support of a railing and enjoys the extra attention she receives from her foster parents.
Allison includes other children in her games and likes to play with dolls and share her toys.
Allison is physically healthy. She eats well, and her weight and height are catching up with the standards for her age. She has some developmental delays that her caregivers attribute to early neglect, lack of stimulation and atypical autism. Allison has difficulty pronouncing some words and, although her learning is below the norm for her age (she recently completed first grade), she loves to go to school.
