YN will turn 2 in March. She is known as a lovely, quiet child who is able to attract the attention of others easily. She likes to be held by those she knows and is easily comforted by receiving hugs and being held by caregivers. She also enjoys being outside on sunny days. A recent report on YN indicates that she can bear weight on her legs, sit, crawl and move towards a toy. She is babbling, saying a few words and able to imitate her caregivers. YN has a condition and has already received one surgery–additional surgeries will be needed.
