Xin Bin (Micah) arrived at Bethel exactly a year ago. This 3 year old loves being cuddled and tickled. He has the cutest smile which shows his tiny teeth so everyone always tickles him to see that beautiful smile.
When he arrived at Bethel he could not stand or walk but now he is doing both on his own even though he prefers to be in someone’s arms. See video below of his first steps!:
When he moved to our project in Changping a few months ago he was afraid of his new environment but he soon got his bearings first with a walker and then walking hand in hand with an ayi. He has slowly come out of his shell and is doing much better playing with the other children his age even though he still prefers to interact with adults.
He is a curious boy and he likes playing with new toys, especially ones that have some sounds or interesting textures.
