Lili is a very delightful girl living in Bethel Foster Home just outside of Beijing. She has a way about her that can’t be captured with just words, maybe it’s the way she can melt a heart by just being a child… She has an adorable smile and is very intelligent.  She has limited vision, but that doesn’t stop her from living actively, and independently. Each child here has monthly goals to reach, set by their nannies. Lili has done very well in achieving these goals, and moves quickly to new ones. Bethel is trying to raise each child to be as independent as they can despite their disabilities and this is coming along quickly for Lili.
Lili is excelling in her everyday life and is quickly growing in knowledge and understanding. She has a mischievous streak in her and often tries to charm her way out of discipline. Like it has been mentioned before, she is very intelligent. She is attending music, English, math, arts and crafts, cooking, as well as pre Braille classes. Bethel is also training the limited vision Lili has, and she can identify different colors, shapes and sizes by using the light box.
Although Lili is sometimes shy, she is quick to learn, and is adjusting to new challenges at a fast pace. She was one of the first children to come to Bethel and each day they are thankful for the joy she brings.  They trust that she will keep excelling in all that is given to her and are grateful for the good health that she enjoys.
