Photo: Look at lovely 11.5 year old, Leona! It seems unbelievable to think that she came into care as an infant and is still waiting for a family. Leona is listed with Madison Adoption Associates and is diagnosed as having tested positive for syphilis as an infant. From an update received this month: She is in grade four now and her academic performance is fair. She can finish homework in time. She likes playing with friends at school. She likes badminton and running. She likes snacks. Her mental and language development are normal. Leona is doing very well, and syphilis didn't exert any impact on her development. She received medical treatment soon after she was accepted by the orphanage. Now she is living in the orphanage and goes to school every day. She receives regular education at a normal school.

She likes to play games with her friends and watch cartoons on TV.
