Mollie Elizabeth Jing Xiu
This is what we know about our little one, it is the information we received in her file……
On 2009-8-17, the Wenbao Branch of Public Security Bureau of Taiyuan City received a report saying a baby girl was found at the No. 2 Hospital of Shanda of Taiyuan, (Jeremy and I feel so blessed that her precious birth mother left her at a hospital) at which time she was about 45 days old without any belongings. After a lot of search failed to find her birth parents, the police sent her to the Social (Children’s) Welfare Institute of Taiyuan City to be raised on the same day. On admission, our medical staff estimated the baby’s DOB to be July 2, 2009 according to her physical development and named her Zheng Jingxiu
Zheng Jingxiu has been fostered in a family since 2009-9-3. Under scientific feeding and nursing in the foster family, the child develops well and her immunity has increased. Zheng Jingxiu’s daily living schedule is that usually she gets up at 7:00, naps during 14:30-15:30 for about 1 hour, and goes to bed at 21:30 and she likes lying in prone position. Types of food are rice, flour products, meat, vegetables, fruits and snacks. She eats less and does not have any preference on food with not good appetite. She likes sweet food. (Yep, I can already tell Mollie is a Turner!!) Now she could walk freely, stand on one foot for 2 seconds, pick up a small pill with her thumbs and index fingers, bang 2 building blocks together, put a building block into a cup, build 4 blocks without falling, turn over pages twice, and cover a box. She knows the concepts of big and small, turns over pages one by one, and she can speak sentences of 2-3 words, understand the meaning of “NO”, respond to the asking of her belongings, be cooperative when put on clothes. She is able to point out her ears, nose, and mouth and express her personal needs orally.
She is gentle, kind of timid and is afraid of being with strangers. She likes listening to music, and she is talkative, fond of singing, (Yep, again, I can tell she is part Herndon as well!!) energetic, and enjoys plying with other children outdoors. She is closest to the foster grandma. She likes any kinds of toy.
She has strong attachment to the foster grandma. If the grandma goes outside and she cannot see her, she would pick up a cell phone from a family member and make a phone call to the grandma imitating what an adult would do and saying “hello, hello, hello”. The grandma loves her very much, and vice versa. Whenever eating food, she would give the grandma first, at which time the grandma is very touching and proud of her. (This is music to our ears!! I love, love, love that my daughter is so loved by her Foster Grandma. She will forever have a place in Mollie’s heart as well as ours. We hope to have a picture of them together that we can proudly display in our home.)
