Older child

Bella has a dream – to live in a loving family together with her older sister Ella. Bella is an 11-year-old girl who lives with her older sister Ella (13) with a foster family in Eastern Europe.

Bella is a 4th grade student in the local school. She interacts well with children and adults, and she often becomes involved in school activities and does well. Bella likes going to school. She actively takes part in games and other activities, and she does not need special education. Her favorite subjects are art, mathematics and music.

Bella is sociable and interacts with the other children at any time – during play, eating and taking walks. She is not aggressive. When there is a conflict, she seeks assistance from adults. Everything in Bella’s life impresses her, including toys and school aids.

Bella’s height corresponds to her age, and there are no visible physical deficiencies. Her physical and mental development are normal for her age. She has established hygiene habits and is well-dressed, clean and neat.

As a result of the placement of the two sisters in a foster family, the good care taken, and the use of the proper social services, Bella and Ella are much more mature biologically,  emotionally, physically and socially.

Of course, like many other children, they still face and will continue to face difficulties in communicating and interacting, enrolling, adapting and socializing.

The common impression is that the children are hopeful. The interest shown to them makes them feel special, which seems to scare them less, so they even allow themselves to joke about it. The relationship between the two sisters continues to deepen, and they openly express love toward each other.
