Na Na's Story

Nana (9) is a girl with a cleft palate. She was abandoned by her biological parents when she was a newborn baby. Nana was placed into foster placement at the age of two-and-a-half.

She felt her parents didn’t want her and had placed her into an institution because she was not good enough. She thought it was all her fault. She saw herself as unlovable and unworthy.

Nana’s foster mother wanted to change Nana’s negative view of herself and worked on demonstrating to Nana that she was loved, wanted, and valued in spite of her gender and impairment, and she was not the person to be blamed.

“You have done nothing wrong. Your parents are not rich and could not afford the expensive surgery. They thought you would receive better medical care and rehabilitation treatment in the institution. It was not your fault at all.”

The love and belief of her foster mother slowly changed Nana. Today she is a much more confident child than she was before. She takes part in classroom activities and is well liked by her peers. She recently performed the leading role in a school play.

Nana told us:

“Before I was not happy. I could get a balloon only on Children’s Day. Now my foster parents love me. I can get a balloon whenever I want one! Every day feels like Children’s Day!”
